CLARKSTON, Wash. (AP) - The Asotin County Sheriff's Office says a man found naked in a Clarkston street was suffering from mental health issues and severed his own genitals.
    
The 62-year-old man was found lying on the ground Tuesday morning. He was taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Lewiston, Idaho, and authorities said Wednesday his injuries were not life-threatening.
    
The man's genitals were recovered from the scene but it was not known if they could be reattached.
    
The sheriff's office is not releasing the man's name.
