SINGAPORE — A 24-year-old man who was caught on video climbing on top of a car while naked will be charged in court on Saturday (June 12).

In a statement on Friday, the police said he will be charged with appearing nude in a public place under the Miscellaneous Offences (Public Order and Nuisance) Act.

The police said they were alerted to an incident where a man was reportedly walking around naked at Block 212 Lorong 8 Toa Payoh at around 5.45am on Thursday.

The man was subsequently arrested, the police added.

A video that made the rounds online on Thursday shows a naked man climbing onto the roof of a car — with its driver inside — in an open-air car park.

After the driver exits from his car, the naked man jumps off and lands onto a grass patch in front of the vehicle.

“The man is also being investigated for other offences, such as public nuisance, obscene act in a public place, wilful trespass and possible traffic violations, in other separate incidents reported,” the authorities said.

The police told TODAY that he is believed to be the same man who was seen in another viral video riding a motorcycle while naked and without a helmet, which was circulated on social media that same day.

In a photo taken by a member of the public, the motorcyclist can be seen waiting at a traffic light near Masjid Darul Aman in Eunos. Another video shows him riding along the Pan Island Expressway.

Police investigations are ongoing.
