The man's relatives wonder why onlookers didn't do anything to help him
A naked man standing in the median of a busy Houston intersection kept a crowd of witnesses enthralled with his Beyoncé impression on Thursday. “He was doing the Beyoncé, the surf board, twerking, the Nae Nae. Every dance that’s out there right now, he was doing,” Chad Arceneaux told KHOU-TV after witnessing the event.
“That’s embarrassing. He’s in the middle of the street,” said Carla Meyers, who identified herself as the man’s cousin. “Something is going on with him, evidently, because he never did that before.” She said the man had been getting high on embalming fluid, according to the New York Daily News. Meyers was horrified by her cousin’s actions, but also by the inaction of the gawkers who were too busy videotaping the public meltdown to seek help for the obviously troubled man. Police took the man to a hospital for a mental health evaluation. It’s unclear whether he faces charges for his actions.
