CHICAGO — A naked 22-year-old man was tasered and arrested Saturday night after he allegedly jumped on cars and damaged a windshield near the North Coast Musical Festival.

Cops responded to a disturbance in the 1400 block of West Randolph Street about 8:10 p.m. Saturday, police said. They found a naked man, 22, sitting in a puddle of water.

The owner of a 2008 Mercedes claimed the man had jumped on top of his car and crashed through its windshield, police said.

Some North Coast attendees spotted the naked man running in the street, and posted a video of the incident on YouTube (WARNING: Video contains nudity and profanity).

When officers tried to take the man into custody, he became "noncompliant and combative," a police source said. The man was tasered and taken to Mount Sinai Hospital.

Police believe the man was under the influence of narcotics.

Charges are pending, and no officers were injured.
