Police: Naked Man Fires Gun at Traffic
A man wearing only socks was arrested along a busy Germantown street after witnesses said he fired a gun at afternoon traffic.
Police charged Glenn Higgs, 44, with reckless endangerment, indecent exposure, firing a weapon in the city limits and public intoxication. Temperatures were in the 40s when the incident occurred Tuesday.
"I couldn't believe it," said Eddie Cox, who was driving home from the bank when he saw the naked gunman near Hacks Cross Road in this Memphis suburb.
"There was a nude man in the middle of the street," Cox said. "He just stopped, kind of spread-eagle in the middle of the street."
Cox said when he tried to drive by, the man grabbed for his vehicle door handle. He then saw the man extend his arm and point toward Hacks Cross Road.
"I saw the smoke and heard the explosion," Cox said, "So, obviously, there's a gun."
Cox called police, who arrested Higgs at the scene and found a revolver in a nearby yard.
Higgs was sent to Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital for a foot injury sustained when he earlier jumped from the second story of his home. Police, who gave no motive for the naked gunman incident, reported no other injuries.
