LOS ANGELES - The nearly weeklong search for a Grammy-nominated producer ended Friday after a resident spotted the man sitting naked in a backyard creek, washing his jeans.
The Topanga Canyon resident found a distraught Christian Julian Irwin saying he feared he was being pursued by Nigerians who had contacted him in an Internet scam, sheriffs Capt. Ray Peavy said.
Authorities began looking for Irwin on Sunday after he made a panicked phone call to a friend, saying he was being pursued by people with dogs. He told his friend he was running through water and had lost his glasses and shoes in a creek.
The most bizarre element in the case is Irwin's recent involvement in a Nigerian Internet scam. The swindle involves e-mailed appeals for advance money to help move large sums out of Nigeria. Victims are told theyll get a big chunk of the fortune in exchange for their help.
Irwin is an independent record producer and engineer whose work has brought three Grammy Nominations, over 50 Gold and Platinum albums and an Emmy Award. He has worked with David Bowie, Jimmy Webb, Vanessa Williams, David Crosby, Chaka Khan, Don Was, Art Garfunkel, Carly Simon, Queen Latifa, Isaac Hayes and Lisa Stansfield.

Too much crack will do that to you!!
In the old days, we would call this a "bad acid trip".
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean someone isn't following you.
Well, you don't want to be caught with dirty clothes when being pursued by Nigerians. Sounds like he's just fine.
So we have a talented idiot.

the dogs are chasing me
was it the brown tabs, or the red pills
Shoot! I was going to sign up for one of those Nigerian deals so I could make big money too! But I don't want to be chased by people with dogs, so I guess I'll pass. All that money gone to waste. Maybe I'll become a music producer instead.
Sounds like drug trip gone really bad.
Gotta find a new drug.
He's probably just another one of those idiots who actually replied to the infamous Nigerian email.
Were the dogs poodles?
So thats how Boxer got her job.
Its time for the California Democratic party to run this guy for office.

I Want A New Drug
I want a new drug
One that won't make me sick
One that won't make me crash my car
Or make me feel three feet thick
I want a new drug
One that won't hurt my head
One that won't make my mouth too dry
Or make my eyes too red
One that won't make you nervous
Wondering what to do
One to help you run
when Nigerians are chasing you.
Sounds like a good plan to me! The concerts are to be staged in the usual places...London, California, New York. We'll get MTV onboard and turn this thing into a real extravaganza. Then we'll put the concerts out on DVD and we'll sell some of the prime cuts to iTunes. Not to mention a real party backstage. Catered food and all the alcoholic beverages you can think of. A good time to be had by all. And it's all for a good cause - we are doing something for Africa. Yay!
Damn those vicious Nigerians!
Bush must be lurking in the background somewhere.
That Nigerian Mafia is ruthless, just give them anything they ask for!
Somebody call Cindy Sheehan and tell her we found her soulmate.
..of course, that's been done already. :P
"drugs", was my guess too. Sounds like he had too much meth/lsd binge. He's lucky he didn't wind up dead due to his own hallucinations. Druggies = Morons
Seems to the the era of "runaway brides".
Another fine exmple of Hollyweird intelligensia. All of us in fly over country better listen to him rather than think for ourselves.
Now I understand the Hollywood Left..Drug induced visions of Marxist paradise mixed with self hate and loathing of a country that would give them such wealth..topped off by neurotic FEAR of the great mass of American citizens who are..war mongers and shop owners unable to understand the deep insight LSD and mescal give the Entertainment elite.
And at the end they want to go out in a blaze of glory via inside bottle rockets set off by Johnny Depp(Dip)
Send him to Crawford!
Your relative needs to find a dealer he can trust. Unless your relative's pot was laced with something (or he's smoking way more than most people do), there's no way in hell that pot will induce paranoia.
Now, I never trust those Nigerians, but I just got a solid lead on some big bucks in Iraq. This is that Bush connection I was just talking about. As soon as I finish brewing up this fantastic mix of chemicals I discovered and have it for breakfast, I am going to contact Mr. Al-najjar. Don't any of you try to contact him before I do or I'll tell the Nigerian dog-men! Remember, they contacted ME due to my HONESTY and TRANSPERENCY.

About two days before the United State and British, bombing began, Saddam Hussein, ordered his youngest son, Qusay, to remove the sum of US$1.billion (£640 million) from the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI) The cash which was loaded on to three lorries.
That memorable day Qusay and a senior aide to the former president Saddam Hussein delivered the instruction in person to the bank,s governor of the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI). And the money was removed without proper official documentations. The money was not debited. It was just remove from the foreign reserve vault. This illegal withdrawer created opportunity for our staffs working in the foreign payments department. We hastingly remove from the vault the sum of US$75.million, which we shared among
ourselves working in the department, five in number. My share was US$10 million, the deal which was absolutely successfully, I am now seeking your help to allow me prepare transfer document in your Name to enable me transferred the

Mr. said Al-najjar
A Phil Spector starter kit in the making?
Sounds like he is living the ultimate lifestyle that is promoted by the whacky environutto liberal fools. Communing with nature, washing his clothes in a stream, living off the land, the way we were all meant to. Ask any libonut.
"there's no way in hell that pot will induce paranoia."
Said Bob, the friendly neighborhood drug peddler.
LOL now that was funny. I have been laughing out load on this thread.
Now that she's paranoid, she can't trust anyone, so she is screwed! At least it will get her off the stuff.
sound like superman girl friend about two years ago
That is a double whammy, to be paranoid and be followed!
Cocaine is a helluva drug.
I like the Donald Trump quote: "It's OK to be a little paranoid because some people do want what you have".
Well, everyone seems convinced it's drugs but just to put an alternative viewpoint out there, it could be schizophrenia. Schizophrenia usually strikes otherwise healthy people, usually relatively young people, without warning and it's very sad when it happens. I'd hate to be making fun of a man who's going through that.
Drugs! He was hopped up on some kind of mind altering substances.
