Naked Man Stands on Tesla, Snarls L.A. Traffic (Video)
Authorities say the man, who was taken to a local hospital, may have had a "meltdown or psychiatric episode or was on a controlled substance."
Some drivers along the Pacific Coast Highway near Los Angeles got an eyeful on Tuesday.
Around 3 p.m., a man who was driving a red Tesla Model S on PCH in the Pacific Palisades area climbed up through his sunroof and proceeded to strip down on top of the car.
As seen in the video below (potentially NSFW), the man had stopped his car near a stoplight and proceeded to fling his clothes onto the road as he took them off. Authorities attempted to talk him down as he waved his arms about and gestured wildly for several minutes.
After Pacific Palisades Fire Station 69 responded to the scene, the man was taken to a local hospital. Capt. Oscar Scott told the Palisadian-Post that he may have had a "meltdown or psychiatric episode or was on a controlled substance."
The incident, which occurred near Entrada Drive in front of the restaurant Patrick's Roadhouse, lasted only about half an hour but snarled traffic for hours, according to the Palisadian-Post.
The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to authorities for further details.
