Naked SF BART Station Acrobat Reportedly Facing Deportation
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – A man who allegedly stripped naked and harassed a number of BART commuters inside a San Francisco station last month is likely now facing deportation, according to published reports.
SF Weekly reports that the man, identified as 24-year-old Yeiner Perez, was handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials after being arrested following a May 10th incident inside the 16th and Mission BART Station. Video from the minutes leading up to the arrest show a nude man doing flips and handstands on fare gates at the station and then harassing several passengers and employees.
The Weekly reports that Perez, who also goes by the last name Garizabalo, is being monitored by ankle bracelet and could still face charges from the San Francisco District Attorney’s office now that video of the incident has surfaced. That video, shot by a BART station agent, has gone viral online.
Law enforcement officials would not confirm Perez’s country of origin, or set a timeline for deportation proceedings.
The acrobat has also been fired from his East Bay performance troop ClownsNotBombs.
