BRADENTON, Fla., Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Florida police said a man who fired a pistol in his apartment before running around the complex naked was under the influence of synthetic marijuana.

Bradenton police said the 23-year-old man, whose name was not released, had been smoking the synthetic marijuana Sunday night before firing a Glock handgun in his apartment and running around the Sheridan Place Apartments complex in the nude, the Bradenton Herald reported Tuesday.

Capt. Warren Merriman said police "don't know" whether the man's drug use contributed to his behavior.

Merriman said no one was injured and the man was taken to Manatee Memorial Hospital for evaluation.
