Update: Officer Albie Esparza says the sock-wearing Muni rider was a 19-year-old man. He eventually got dressed and walked away. No arrest was made. KTVU captured video of the incident. Watch below (NSFW)

A ballsy Muni passenger reportedly held up commuters this afternoon when he boarded the 1-California line and decided to strip down on board.

After taking off all his clothing, the unidentified man put a sock on his penis, apparently ready to be shuttled to his destination (also unknown).

According to Paul Rose, spokesman for Muni, the operator stopped the bus and informed the mostly naked man that he had to get dressed.

When he refused to put his clothes back on, the police were called to the scene. "That bus was evacuated and everyone had to get on another bus," Rose tells us.

By 2:48 p.m., the passenger was dressed again and police had cleared the scene. According to Rose, the sock-wearing man was not arrested.

Sorry, we have no footage of this bizarre incident.

Update: Now we have a video, thanks to KTVU.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
