Thirty-year-old Garland Eastman of Vernon was charged Sunday with breach of peace. Police say he was brought to Rockville General Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation and later released.
Authorities say they received several emergency calls about Eastman, who witnesses say was standing at the corner of Route 83 and Regan Road at about 11:00 a.m.
Officers say they pulled out bean bag and taser guns, and Eastman became polite and cooperative.
Eastman couldn't be reached Monday. He has no public phone listing, and it's not clear whether he has a lawyer.
Public records show Eastman used to live in Memphis, Tenn.
