San Diego police spokeswoman Andra Brown said:

“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.”

Andra Brown added that after assessing his condition, officers had decided to take him to a medical facility for treatment.

Jason Russell, the co-founder of Invisible Children has been taken to hospital in San Diego, California, after he was found semi-naked and screaming at traffic.

His reps and wife, Danica Russell, insist his odd behavior was from “extreme exhaustion and dehydration,” and not stemming from alcohol or drug abuse.

Mrs. Russell’s statement read: “Let us say up front that Jason has never had a substance abuse or drinking problem, and this episode wasn’t caused by either of those things. But yes, he did some irrational things brought on by extreme exhaustion and dehydration.”

There are reportedly no current plans to charge Mr. Russell with any crimes.
Invisible Children’s 30 minute video on the use of child soldiers by Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda has been viewed tens of millions of times on YouTube over the past week.
