SAN DIEGO — Campus police arrested a 53-year-old man over the weekend after he called 911 to say that he was running around naked, eating toothpaste and scribbling graffiti in classrooms at San Diego State University.

When police found the man on Sunday, the man told them that he was “fighting for a cause” and that he wanted to see his doctor about his medications, SDSU police Capt. Josh Mays told the Los Angeles Times.

Most of the graffiti, which was scrawled in five classrooms, was indecipherable, but one symbol appeared to be a Star of David, Mays said. The man, a Santee resident, has no known connection to the university, Mays said.

The incident is not thought to be a hate crime and no criminal charges were filed, Mays said. Police took the man to a mental health clinic for evaluation.
