PENTICTON - Thursday is the new hump day - at least, apparently, for one Penticton man.

Penticton RCMP responded to a complaint of a man in a parking lot at Naramata Road and Todd Road last Thursday, Sept. 1.

The caller said the man was in the parking lot  "humping telephone poles and kicking dirt on cars."

Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says the man was found wandering around in the parking lot talking about magnetic fields and having what appeared to be delusional thoughts.

He admitted to smoking marijuana recently and was taken to the detachment for lock up after it was discovered he had been treated for similar activity at Penticton Regional Hospital earlier in the day.
