CLARKSTON, Wash. - Early Tuesday morning, authorities received a call saying that a naked man was lying in the street near the 1400 block of 5th street.

When first responders arrived, they realized the naked man was actually suffering from a severed penis.

Authorities were able to follow the trail of blood and found the penis about 100 feet away from where the man was laying.

The man was taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center to be treated.

KHQ spoke to Dan Hally, Captain of the Asotin County Sheriff's Office and he said authorities are still investigating whether this was a self-inflicted wound or if someone else did this.
