SAUGERTIES, New York: A Saugerties man who stole an American flag and ran down Market Street naked, spitting on the flag and wiping his buttocks with it, could face criminal charges, police said Friday.

Stoltzfus was taken into custody and brought to the HealthAlliance Hospital’s Broadway Campus in Kingston for a psychiatric evaluation, police said.
Police said Stoltzfus could be charged with the misdemeanors of petit larceny and criminal mischief and the violation of disorderly conduct.
LAKELAND, Fla. -- A large, black-and-white checkered statue of a swan that was stolen in Florida by a naked man has been found.
The Polk County Sheriff's office says the statue was located by a 32-year-old man who was fishing on a pong in Lakeland.
The man returned home from fishing Thursday and told his family about the statue. When they saw the news of the stolen statue on TV Friday, they called authorities.
Authorities say the swan doesn't appear to be damaged.
Surveillance video showed a naked man -- who was later identified as 47-year-old Ronald Thompson -- driving away from Lakeland Cold Storage in a stolen truck with the swan, named "Aspyre," which is worth $25,000.
Investigators say they found the stolen truck in a nearby county. But it remained a mystery as to why Thompson was naked while he allegedly broke into the storage facility.
CBS Detroit reports Thompson was arrested Tuesday. He is being held in lieu of $2,000 bail and is being investigated for the swan theft.
PHOENIX, AZ (KSAZ) - Authorities say a naked man was hit by a car along Interstate 17 on Friday morning.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety says the man ran into the freeway following an altercation with staff and security at the Residence Inn near I-17 and Northern.
Once he was on the freeway, the man took off his clothes and laid down on the southbound lanes of I-17 and when he stood up, he was hit by a car. He's been transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.
Lincoln police arrested a man early Friday after struggling with him in the backyard of a home in the 1300 block of South 49th Street.
Officers were originally called to the home regarding a domestic disturbance about 3:40 a.m. The man, who has not been identified, was banging on the door to the home of a person he knows. Officer Angela Sands said the man doesn't live at the address.
When officers arrived, they found him naked and agitated in the backyard. They believe he was under the influence of an unknown drug, Sands said.
Officers were able to get one cuff on his hand, but he tried fighting them off and started kicking the officers, Sands said. One deployed their Taser, she said.
He was taken to the hospital for observation and upon his release will be arrested on suspicion of third-degree domestic assault, Sands said.
A schizophrenic man transported in an ambulance escaped on Monday morning — climbing a 30-foot-tall excavator on the Palmetto Expressway before removing his clothes and claiming to be a serial killer, police say.
Members of the Hialeah Police Crisis Negotiation Team and SWAT, along with Hialeah Fire Rescue and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, responded to the scene near Northwest 122nd Street. They found a man threatening to “kill everyone” and appearing to be touching his genital area, according to an incident report obtained by the Miami Herald.
The 29-year-old man, who lives in Miami Gardens, remained atop the construction vehicle for about an hour before climbing down.
The man, whose name was removed from the report, escaped the ambulance near the intersection of West 21st Court and West 68th Street before heading to the highway, according to the report.
Miami-Dade police had previously placed him under an involuntary mental health evaluation, police said.
Video obtained by the Herald shows the man standing naked atop the excavator surrounded by police officers, firefighters and passing drivers. He was hallucinating and said his “worlds were merging and it was going to end,” the report states.
An ambulance driver had picked him up Monday morning from Citrus Mental Health, and was taking him to Palmetto General Hospital when he escaped around 7:33 a.m., according to the report.
The man, listed in the report as having schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, became irate and said he wanted police to kill him, officers said. He broke the ambulance's rear window and fled the scene.
The man was eventually handcuffed and taken to the Jackson Memorial Crisis Unit for an involuntary mental evaluation, but not before he tried again to escape custody.
At 9:23 a.m., while handcuffed in the back of a Hialeah police vehicle, the man removed his seat belt, brought his hands forward and attempted to pull down an open window and kick another, according to the report. He also stated he would “buy hollow point ammunition to kill cops.”
A Mandeville man is accused of unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling following a burglary call.
According to an arrest report for Jeremy Ocmond, 22, Beau Rivage Drive, Mandeville, officers were dispatched to a home on Racine Drive in Monroe at 6:43 a.m. and found Ocmond in a storage shed.
The suspect was ordered out of the shed. Officers reported he was nude and covered in potting soil.
Per the affidavit, Ocmond told officers he did not know where he was and entered the shed looking for a man to have sex with. He said he had been kicked out of Rayville Recovery the night before and was doing methamphetamine five hours earlier.
The homeowner told officers his alarm kept going off, and he went to his shed to investigate. Ocmond was discovered during the check.
He said he didn't know Ocmond and didn't give him permission to be inside the building.
Ocmond was transported to Ouachita Correctional Center where he was booked on one count of unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.
According to the arrest report, Ocmond previously faced charges of unauthorized entry and lewd conduct.
A sheriff’s deputy arrested Andrew Humphries, 18, after police found him walking along South U.S. Highway 441 naked Wednesday following a car crash, WTSP reported.
Police responded to a report of a crash on Highway 441 and Southeast 81st Street when they learned one of the drivers left the scene.
According to a video of the incident, a deputy found Humphries strolling along the highway and asked the man to come to him.
“What’s the deal, man? Why are you naked?” the deputy asked. “Were you in that accident up the road there?”
“No, sir,” Humphries responded.
Humphries then walked over to the car and tried to open the locked driver’s side door. The deputy then cuffed him and put him inside the car.
“Let me explain to you why you’re in cuffs: you tried to open up the door of a police car,” the deputy told Humphries. “So, something’s going on with you that you’re doing stuff that’s not normal.”
“In addition to that, you are absolutely naked, my man — another thing not normal,” the deputy added.
After the deputy told Humphries that medical personnel was coming to check him out and asked him if he was going to give them a hard time, there was mumbling and then a loud yell followed by several loud thuds, according to the video.
Humphries allegedly “kicked the rear passenger door and pulled on the metal cage.” Police estimate the vehicle suffered $1,000 in damage.
Deputies took him to Marion County Jail and charged him with two counts of criminal mischief, one of them a felony count for property damage of $1,000 or more and the other a misdemeanor.
The Florida Highway Patrol, which was investigating the crash Humphries was involved in, reports that witnesses say Humphries tried to open the door and pulled off the handle of a parked car at the Marion County Sheriff’s Multi-District Office.
He also allegedly urinated on the vehicle after he discovered he could not get in.
The Miami Herald reports that the estimated damage to the other vehicle was about $700.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the crash separately from the charges, the sheriff’s office said.
