CHP officers used stun guns to subdue a 25-year-old Hawthorne man who had crashed a rented pickup and stripped off all his clothes Sunday morning on Highway 101 in Petaluma.
The northbound lanes of the freeway were blocked for 10 to 15 minutes while officers arrested Alexander Jon Leonard on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and resisting arrest. Leonard was booked into the Sonoma County Jail.
Shortly after 9 a.m. Sunday, CHP dispatchers received calls of a vehicle weaving and preventing other traffic from passing it in the northbound lanes of Highway 101 near the East Washington Street overpass.
The vehicle, a rented 2013 Silver Chevy pickup, later crashed into a guard rail at low speeds. Leonard, its driver, got out of the truck and began disrobing.
“After shedding all of his clothing, Leonard started running around in lanes of traffic,” said a CHP press release.
When officers arrived, Leonard resisted their efforts to arrest him, according to the press release. The officers used stun guns and took Leonard into custody. He was taken first to Petaluma Valley Hospital and then to the jail.
SONOMA COUNTY BY THE CARDS
Page of Coins: A studious youth. Scholarship, study and academia. Hard work will bring high achievement. A messenger is expected who will bring good news.
Knight of Coins: A slow, plodding but reliable man. Someone who will stick with a project no matter how long it takes to complete it. Responsible, reliable and pragmatic. He is honorable, reliable and keen to assist. Travel is likely.
King of Swords (reversed): A strong man who may be very opinionated. An authority figure. A perceptive, strong-willed, intelligent man. (Reversed: Tyranny and domination; a cruel, cold man.)
Seven of Swords (reversed): Distrust and dishonesty. Suspicion may be justified. Unreliability, theft and dishonorable actions may be afoot. Be careful whom you trust — although there are also those who would be more supportive and loyal than you expect. (Reversed: Loss, defeat and confusion.)
The Emperor (reversed): There can be no winners without losers. Patriarchal authority. Power, masculine strength. Great motivation to achieve success. Competitiveness, and the desire for victory and conquest. (Reversed: Tendency to enjoy the failure of others, and a lack of ability to collaborate and cooperate toward a common goal. This is the card of a real go-getter, but perhaps one who does not mind leaving a battlefield strewn with bodies for the sake of a conquest.)
Justice (reversed): Do what is right. Fairness, justice and equal opportunity. Fate may aim to give all what they deserve, but sometimes she needs a helping hand, and the strong should help the weak. (Reversed: Injustice, false accusations and prejudice.)
