CROWN POINT | The man who told police he was "cuckoo for cocoa puffs" has been identified by officials, police said.
Bryon Womack was found walking on Interstate 65 south of 61st Avenue Sunday afternoon with a nearly 3-foot-long "samurai" sword, according to an Indiana State Police news release.
Womack, 43, of Cicero, Ill., was taken to Lake County Jail, where he could not identify himself for police.
After police had pulled over to try to apprehend the man, an SUV pulled over to avoid hitting a police unit, and Womack tried to get into the vehicle.
He was charged with attempted carjacking, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana, police said.
He was still at Lake County Jail as of late Monday night, ISP officials said.
