A man was arrested for standing naked on the Howard red line El platform in Rogers Park on Wednesday evening. A CTA supervisor called the police when he saw the completely naked man.

When police approached him he refused to put clothes on. The Tribune writes:

When police asked him why he was not wearing any clothing, the 18-year-old said, “I don’t want to be a follower," police said.

The police did not charge the man. He was released and taken to the hospital for examination.
