Naked woman tackled, detained after walking on Bay Bridge

OAKLAND — The California Highway Patrol says a woman has been taken for a mental evaluation after police caught her walking naked on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge.

Officer Kevin Bartlett says officers were responding to a report of a crash involving at least two vehicles Tuesday afternoon near Treasure Island when they learned of a nude woman walking in the area.

Bartlett tells the Oakland Tribune (http://bayareane.ws/1Ae2m3P) a San Francisco police officer pulled over, wrestled the woman to the ground and detained her.

He says the woman was taken to a hospital where she was to undergo a mental evaluation.

No one was seriously injured in the two-car crash.

It was not immediately known if the naked woman was the cause of the crash.
