SANTA CRUZ – A 46-year-old man was arrested Sunday evening after someone flagged down an officer on Dakota Avenue near San Lorenzo Park to report that there was a naked man near the bathrooms causing a commotion, police said.
The officer found David Torrell, naked, near the bathroom about 7:20 p.m., talking loudly to himself, and carrying pants, shoes and some tools, police spokesman Zach Friend said.
Torrell smelled like alcohol and had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and an unsteady gait, Friend said.
The officer covered him with a blanket and arrested him on suspicion of being drunk in public, he said.
Torrell was described as a transient.
