PULLMAN -- Police took Pullman City Councilman Derrick Skaug into protective custody Wednesday after neighbors at his apartment complex reported he was throwing furniture off his deck, putting stickers on car windows and acting strangely.

Sgt. Jake Opgenorth told The Moscow-Pullman Daily News (http://bit.ly/1a21oW3) officers made a welfare check and Skaug initially locked himself in his bathroom. The 23-year-old was taken to Pullman Regional Hospital because officers felt he was acting irrationally.

Police had also been at the apartment early Wednesday on a noise complaint and asked him to turn down his music.

Skaug is a former vice president of Associated Students of Washington State University. He was appointed to the Pullman City Council to fill a vacant position in May of last year. He was not at Tuesday's meeting.
