A naked commuter at a Moscow railway station caused a rumpus on Sunday, forcing police to intervene.

The man got on a train at a station in the west of the Russian capital, removed his clothes and set off the fire extinguisher, witnesses said. He then urged shocked fellow passengers to “go on a ride” with him, but when no one agreed, settled for a solo act, which was caught on video.

After that, he slipped under the train and lay there for some time. After he tired of that, he started spraying blue cleaning fluid from a bridge connecting two platforms, even targeting the hapless cleaner who’d been using it with the liquid.

The naked troublemaker’s antics continued outside the station, where he tried to hijack one of the waiting taxis and began brawling with the driver. This didn’t go down too well, especially given that – unsurprisingly – he wasn’t wearing a face mask.

He soon found an even more entertaining pastime – he got inside the water tank of a road-sweeping truck. Conveniently, he didn’t even need to undress to take a swim, even though the temperature outside – which was just 10 degrees above zero– wasn’t the most suitable for swimming.

Nonetheless, it seems his dip may have calmed him down, and this is where the police discovered him. Apprehending the troublemaker, however, turned out to be no easy task.

It’s so far unclear whether the Covid-19 lockdown or other reasons caused the man’s odd behaviour, although those who saw him in action insisted he was sober.
