Bronx, New York (The Weekly Vice) - An unnamed 41-year-old man stripped naked, yelled racial slurs and chased passengers around at a Bronx subway station before he was finally wrestled to the ground.
A video of the incident was captured by a passenger's camera phone on May 2 - which then went viral yesterday after it had been uploaded to YouTube.
The video begins with a boxer-clad man yelling racial slurs from the northbound 6 train after it had just unloaded passengers at the Hunts Point Avenue station in the south Bronx.
The man continued his rant while banging on the opposing doors of the train and kicking aside a pair of trousers that had been dropped to his ankles.
One minute into the video, the man finally dropped his shorts as surrounding passengers kept their distance. One passenger could be heard stating "There it is" as the fully nude man emerged from that train and darted around boarding area.
At one point the man chased a woman up a flight of stairs before ripping a bag from her shoulder. He then chased another passenger who managed to tie him up until other passengers and an transit cop could get him wrestled to the ground.
The man was taken to Lincoln Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, but has not been charged in the incident. The officer involved in the take-down was taken to Jacobi Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and then released.
