A man driving a red Tesla Model S on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) in the Pacific Palisades around 3 p.m. Tuesday climbed on top of the car and stripped naked, dancing wildly and provocatively.
Los Angeles onlookers captured video of the man, who stopped near a stoplight and flung his clothes onto the road as he took them off. Authorities tried to calm him down but he flapped his arms wildly and made weird gestures for several minutes.
The man was taken to the hospital by Pacific Palisades Fire Station 69 officers who said the man was having a “meltdown or psychotic episode or was on a controlled substance.”
The wild incident occurred near Entrada Drive on the popular Los Angeles freeway in front of Patrick’s Roadhouse Restaurant and snarled traffic for hours.
Video of the man has gone viral, showing up on YouTube and news stations across the country. He is seen flapping like a bird and writhing around in his car as he exits through the sunroof. He eventually abandoned the Tesla and ran along Santa Monica Beach, according to witnesses.
No word on what Tesla fan Johnny Depp thought, but his movie Transcendance bombed at the box office last weekend. Perhaps Depp would have better luck with audiences writhing around naked on a Tesla like this dude. Party on!
