Butt naked student drugged out of his mind is arrested; Harvard black law students question police behavior

A naked Harvard student was arrested for disorderly conduct Friday.

Selorm Ohene, 21, a math major originally from Ghana, was arrested after streaking on a street in Cambridge while under the influence of drugs, the Daily Mail reported. The Cambridge Police Department responded to a 911 call that a woman saw a man take off his clothes and throw them at her. The police then found the completely nude man standing in the middle of a traffic island.

Ohene was reportedly violent and an officer punched him five times in the stomach to calm him down and arrest him.

“Numerous attempts made by officers to calm the male down were met with opposition and his hostility escalated while officers attempted to speak with him,” a police arrest report claimed. “Every attempt that was made to calm Ohene down and reason with him was met with opposition.”

The police’s behavior did not fare well with the Harvard Black Law Students Association who wrote in a statement on their official website that a naked, unarmed black man “was surrounded by at least four Cambridge Police Department (CPD) officers who, without provocation, lunged at him, tackled him and pinned him to the ground.”

Cambridge Mayor Marc McGovern, a Democrat, said that an internal investigation is currently taking place regarding the behavior of the police officers, according to The Boston Globe. “Cambridge affirms that Black Lives Matter, but it must be true in practice as well,” he said in a statement Sunday.

Police believe that Ohene ingested narcotics and possibly LSD, which made him act up. He was arrested and charged with indecent exposure, disorderly conduct, assault, resisting arrest, among other charges.
