WATCH: A Man With a Knife and Bandages on His Face Walking on an L.A. Freeway

In case you haven't seen this, a man with surgical bandages covering parts of his head and face was filmed walking down the middle of a busy Los Angeles freeway. He's also wearing hospital scrubs, and holding a knife at his side. This was before Halloween so it looked like a prank. Cars slowed down, but mostly to avoid hitting him. The woman who shot the video pulled over to check on the guy, and that's when she saw that his eyes were closed. She called 911 and authorities took him to the hospital where he was put on a 72-hour mental health hold.
