A naked man in a red Tesla Model S stopped traffic for hours in Santa Monica.

The episode, captured on video and posted to YouTube on Tuesday, shows the man crawling through the sunroof as his vehicle sits parked in the middle of a busy stretch of the Pacific Coast Highway. He then takes off his clothes and starts gyrating wildly as cars honk at him. Eventually the police show up.

According to the Palisadian Post, the incident “brought traffic to a standstill and caused massive delays.”

A Palisades fire official was quoted as saying that the man had a possible “meltdown or psychiatric episode or was on a controlled substance.”

He was later taken to a local hospital, the Post reported.
