If you see a naked guy on the train, don't mess with him. CTA guards and policemen found out first-hand as they tried to apprehend an 18-year-old agitated nudist on the Red Line yesterday. Pepper spray and a Taser didn't stop him, and he broke a train window before fleeing. He was eventually subdued somewhere on North Kenmore.
