It wasn’t exactly an everyday occurrence at the crowded intersection of West Gulf Bank Road and Antoine Drive in northwest Houston.

A man whose identity has not been released stepped onto a median at the intersection, stripped naked, and began displaying a variety of dance moves while a crowd of spectators gawked and took video with their camera phones.

“I think it’s sickening. It’s disgusting. It’s gross. It’s nasty,” said neighbor Tammy Norwood.

At one point, a preschool-aged girl stood at the edge of a lawn and watched as the man danced, twerked, and made a variety of obscene gestures. “He was doing the Beyonce, the surf board, twerking, the Nae Nae. Every dance that’s out there right now, he was doing,” said witness Chad Arceneaux. “I didn’t know what was next.”

Carla Meyers, the man's cousin, said he had been using embalming fluid and wondered if that was the cause of his bizarre actions. But more pressing was her concern that the 30 or so lookyloos did nothing but film the strange event with their phones.

“I have a problem with that. Everybody is videoing it, but nobody stops to make sure he was okay,” said Meyers.

After being made aware of the situation, the family rushed out to the median and covered him with a sheet, before Houston Police arrived and put him into custody. He was then sent off to receive a mental evaluation.
