AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Police say a 53-year-old man likely won’t face criminal charges after he was found walking along a snowy interstate wearing nothing but a cowboy hat.

Auburn Hills police Lt. Casimir Miarka says officers discovered the man walking down northbound lanes on Interstate 75 during the snowstorm Sunday morning. He says it appeared the man had driven his vehicle off the road and into a nearby ditch.

Miarka says the Bloomfield Hills man was taken to a hospital for an evaluation. He says it’s unclear if drugs or alcohol were involved.

Miarka tells the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday morning that the man, who may have had a mental health issue, isn’t likely to be charged.
