A pedestrian spotted walking in the center divide of Highway 1 near the California Men's Colony disrupted traffic for a short time Tuesday morning.

The man was reported walking in the roadway just before 9 a.m.

The California Highway Patrol responded and ran traffic breaks as a precaution while the man ran back and forth across the lanes.

He eventually ran into a field and officers lost sight of him.

CHP says the man was not an inmate.
