Fun City: Crazed Naked Guy Terrorizes New York City Subway Passengers

A crazed naked man seen menacing New York City subway passengers on a scary new viral video was handcuffed and transported to a Bronx hospital last week, but not charged in connection with the bizarre incident, according to police.

Warning: The above video contains profanity and nudity and is NSFW.

The man’s May 2 outburst occurred on a northbound 6 train in the Hunts Point Avenue station in the south Bronx. As seen in the video, which was originally uploaded to YouTube by a straphanger, the man yelled racial and ethnic slurs as he finished removing his pants.

After hurling himself into a set of doors, the man took off his boxer shorts, which elicited squeals from shocked observers. As a police officer was talking on his radio, the man bolted from the subway car and accosted a woman walking up a stairway. After slamming a package of hers to the ground, he lunged at a man walking perilously close to a platform edge.

With the help of some male onlookers, the cop succeeded in wrestling the man to the ground, where he was subdued. A police spokesman told TSG that the man, 41, was treated as an emotionally disturbed person and transported in custody to Lincoln Hospital for psychological evaluation.

The Transit District 12 officer with whom he grappled suffered a minor injury for which he was treated and released at Jacobi Hospital, the spokesman added.

Death by cop?
Modern society has de-balled the police. In my day, this lunatic would have been knocked out with a nightstick and dragged away in cuffs -- by 1 cop. Total duration of incident: 10 seconds.
I can see this being a good video for the Smoking Gun...but come on Drudge?! We don't need to see this!!!!!
They should have a gay crew standing buy to bring him down.
This is not amusing, it is sad. We should not make mentally ill people the sideshow of our society.
Beware of the Naked Man!
Very amusing. Not sure it warrants a main headline on Drudge.
Well, he DOES seem to be fond of the word ni**er. This should appeal to the wider Drudge audience.

Fire the recalcitrant transit cop and hire the civilians that took down the crazed nudist.
