VIDEO: Naked Acrobat Assaults Transit Riders
The naked acrobat who attacked several transit riders at a San Francisco station Monday during a bizarre incident will likely be deported to his native Columbia.
Yeiner Alberto Perez Garizabalo, 24, was taken into custody Monday around noon for the May 10 incident that was captured on video by a BART station agent. BART Police Chief Kenton Rainey has said he ordered a review of how officers responded when initially arresting the Berkeley acrobat and stilt walker.
"If there were any procedural failings we will correct them, and if there were performance issues with our officers we will address them," Rainey told the San Francisco Appeal.
Perez has been charged with two felony counts of false imprisonment, four misdemeanor counts of battery while on public transportation property and one misdemeanor count of sexual battery for allegedly grabbing a passenger in an intimate area, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
On the station agent's video, Perez can be seen doing flips, handstands and splits on BART turnstiles and kicked a BART employee several times.
