The man who swam naked across Lake Merritt on Wednesday afternoon after stealing from two women in downtown Oakland is a former basketball player at the University of Michigan and the University of San Francisco, police confirmed today.
Dommanic Ingerson, 26, of San Leandro, was taken to the John George Psychiatric Pavilion in San Leandro on Wednesday after swimming about 400 yards across the 50-degree lake and emerging naked. Police said Ingerson jumped into the lake behind the Camron-Stanford House, a historic Victorian in the 1400 block of Lakeside Drive, about 3 p.m. and swam to the 1400 block of Lakeshore Avenue in about 35 minutes.
He was wearing black trunks or shorts when he jumped into the water but had nothing on when he came out, police said.
