Screaming man atop Mercedes-Benz at Hollywood and Highland detained

A screaming man standing atop a Mercedes-Benz at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue was detained today and likely will be booked on suspicion of being drunk or high, police said.

Police got the call about 12:20 a.m. and soon detained the suspect, a Los Angeles police sergeant at the Hollywood Station said.

It was unclear if the man — his name was withheld pending booking — would be arrested or placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold, he said.
