SAN DIEGO -- Officers had to wrangle a naked man who decided to run through a busy Point Loma neighborhood Saturday afternoon. 
 
According to San Diego police, at about 12:22 p.m., officers responded to reports of a man running naked down Point Loma Boulevard, blowing kisses at people. 
 
Officers eventually detained him at West Point Loma Boulevard and Midway Drive. It appeared he may have had a mental breakdown, police said. 
 
Witnesses described a different scene. A woman told 10News she saw men fighting just before seeing the man darting down the street in his birthday suit. 
 
A man in a camper saw the man run toward him and said a man was chasing after him. He said the two men were yelling at each other. He said he tried to help, but they ran past his camper into a wetland area. 
 
He was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation. He was not injured. It was not clear if he would face any charges.
