The video begins with the man, who was not identified by police, yelling racial slurs at straphangers on a northbound 6 train at the Hunts Point Avenue station.

Cops said the bizarre incident happened about 4:15 p.m. on May 2, 2011.

He told an officer standing outside the subway car door at one point to “shoot me!” The loon dropped his boxers, then naked, he leapt from the train and grabbed a woman’s bag. He jumped on another woman before the officer was able to pull him off.


The officer, assisted by several civilians, finally subdued the naked man.

He was taken to Lincoln Hospital for a psychological evaluation and not charged.

The officer was taken to Jacobi Hospital, where he was treated for minor injuries.
