COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- A naked man screamed at people as he jumped on their cars in a Coeur d Alene intersection, according to the police department.

Officers responded to the scene in the 3700 block of Whisper Drive around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. They arrived to find the 27-year-old man pinned down in the street by neighbors, who released him once they saw police.

Police call him combative. They say he defecated on himself and was covered in feces. He also had blood on his body from some small injuries. Officers eventually had to hold him on the ground as they put on handcuffs and leg restraints.

Medics took the man to Kootenai Medical Center to be evaluated. Charges have not been filed. The police department has not released his name.

Witnesses told police the man ran at them and leapt on their cars before officers arrived. One woman said the man was jumping in and out of a small car parked on the street. He then allegedly ran at her and her husband when he noticed them.

She also told police he lay in front of her car demanding that she run him over before hopping on the hood. Police say he pounded on her hood but then slid off the vehicle as she drove away. Her car was left with dents and cracked windshield.

Another man suffered minor injures while restraining the man.
