One example is the naked man who knocked on a door early Wednesday and fled using a lounge chair cushion for cover.
Police say he had apparently stripped off his clothes in a back yard, defecated and left, leaving behind a wallet with his identification.
Officers found the 22-year-old at a relative's house, unaware of his actions.
They left him in the custody of his family to seek medical attention.
Police say it's the fourth similar incident in two weeks in Spokane.
