Yesterday, we shared a mind-blowing video of an incident that occurred in San Francisco’s 16th Street BART station. A naked man strode into the station and began attacking people. In between attacks, though, he executed a number of difficult gymnastics moves. The man has now been identified as 24-year-old Yeiner Perez, who is also known as Yeiner Garizabalo. Perez, not surprisingly, is a trained dancer and acrobat, and until recently had been a part of the circus troupe ClownSnotBombs, but stopped showing up for practice in the weeks before the incident.  A friend in the troupe said, “He’s been through a lot of stress — he seems to have been having a breakdown.”

Slim Chance, leader of the ClownSnotBombs doesn’t believe Perez was on drugs, but does think he may have experienced some kind of physical trauma. “I don’t know. We’re thinking he may have even had a stroke sometime last year,” he said. “We’ve been trying to piece it together ourselves.”

As a result of the May 10th incident, Perez was taken in for psychiatric evaluation, released, and charged with (just) misdemeanor battery. Police are working with San Francisco’s district attorney to get an order barring Perez from BART property. [NY Daily News]
