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.

lol... climb aboard!
This is only newsworthy because it's a white guy. I see nalf naked brothers yelling at whites ("crackers!!!") every other day on the subway.
No you dont.
How can they call this News, this happens along with other strange things all the time in New York, so what else is new?
Just another Democrat helping a slobbering drunk and high, unemployed, Democrat who probably voted for Obama too. Poor baby could not find the unemployment office to get his check so he had a tantrum!!
Perhaps you are the one who is drunk or high, to not see that this individual is clearly mentally ill. And I "m not a democrat, nor did I vote for Obama.
Ha, Gonzo . . . your comedy is not bad. But it's a little too over the top; I don't think any Republicans are quite as dumb as to attempt to make something like this political. Still - not bad satire. Just try to be slightly more subtle next time.
Subtle, like Republicans want to build a moat filled with alligators?
Ha! sadly I believe you are mistaken here Smarter, some are indeed that dumb, see Agmines comment below for more evidence. This is clearly the result of this story being posted this morning on the Drudge Report. Always brings out the lowest common denominator in the comments sections of stuff reported there. Hysterically funny and deeply depressing at the same time, sigh...
Actually, Agmines point about the law is correct. Google Castle Rock v. Gonzales, no 04-278, to see that was the decision by the SCOTUS. And while this particular example may not warrant lethal use of force, it's true that the framers of the Constitution did believe in individual responsibility, and the idea of being armed for self-defense was one of the ancillary benefits of the second amendment. I consider "lowest common denominator" actions to be things like pandering to illegals and mocking advocates of national defense and law enforcement who want to defend our sovereign borders as "wanting a moat with alligators." I don't find humor in our nation's chief law enforcement officer so blythely mocking his responsibilities, but I will agree it is depressing.
