Kony filmmaker naked in the street

THE co-head of a viral online campaign to hunt down Ugandan war criminal Joseph Kony has been hospitalised after being found naked in the street, masturbating.

The head of Invisible Children Ben Keesey said Jason Russell was receiving medical care for "exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition."

San Diego Police Department spokeswoman Andrea Brown said officers detained a 33-year-old man on Thursday and took him to a medical facility after passers-by reported him in the street in the southern Californian city.

"Officers responded to a radio call to check the welfare of an individual who was said to be running in the street, interfering with traffic, screaming; one person said that he was naked and masturbating," she told AFP.

"Other people said that he was interfering with traffic, banging on the sidewalk that sort of thing. We have reports of being in various states of undress, and neighbours in the area were concerned about him."
