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.

Could that cop been any more useless?? He stood by and watched this guy assault people and did nothing. Is this the hyped "unionized professional" everyone is talking about???
Police are under no obligation to protect or defend anyone at anytime. This is why America is built upon Self-Defense on their own. Yet, In NYC Mayor Bloomberg resents and outlaws guns for Self-Defense, this is why Gun Control does not work and only in gun, free zones are people molested, mugged, or killed. The NRA has to challenge Communistic and Fascists NYC Gun Laws and make it safe for everyone to conceal and carry and use castle doctrine of self-defense if attacked by anyone, free from prosecution except felons, and Mayor Bloomberg and other politicians for Gun control. Let their muggings lead by example on why common citizens should have no problem carrying a gun for Self-Defense.
This is a perfect example of incompetent subway police just standing around while this guy could have really hurt somone. This moron [ speaking of the worthless cop ] was a worse spectacle than the naked guy.
DIdn't want to get sued by Eric Holder. He knew the video was being recorded. Oh wait, this was a white guy? What am I talking about, Holder wouldn't give a ship. Yeah, you were right in the first place!!
Shoulda tased him, bro
the fuzz should have pepper sprayed his ***in pecker.
Typical ride on a San Francisco bus.
How many perverts are in the subways? There must have been 50 guys with their cellphones out recording this madman so that they can get their jollies off later on.
Oh wow can we say "the cop did crap"?!?!?! Seriously can you believe that the transit cop just stood there and did nothing about this? Does not surprise me at all!!!
A naked man on an NYC subway is something new? I thought the opposite would be news.
