An intoxicated former Navy sailor from Virginia was arrested Friday after he was running around nude and trying to break into various cars in the Busch Gardens Williamsburg theme park.
He was racing back and forth in the Italy and Germany parking lots trying to get into occupied and unoccupied vehicles, Fox 8 News reported. James City County Police said that Adrian Gilbert Cardenas, 21, was under the influence of alcohol and narcotics and became combative with police when they tried to arrest him.
The precise time that the incident unfolded is not known but the whole scene was captured on video. Here is one video clip:

Prior to police arriving, dozens of witnesses rallied together to contain Cardenas.
Cardenas was aggressive with onlookers and police, and ultimately police had to taser him as he tried to run away from the scene.
Witness Brandon Ragans said a Facebook post, “A naked man was running around a parking lot at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Va., attempting to get in a vehicle with strangers. A citizen put him on the curb then once the officer showed up he became combative and had to be tased.”
Video shows Ragans resisting a police’s officers attempts to detain him, prompting onlookers to jump in and assist in restraining him. He was arrested and taken to the local hospital for treatment due to his high level of intoxication.
“The officer tased the man, who was taken to the hospital because he was intoxicated on alcohol and illegal narcotics,” said Steve Rubino, James City County deputy chief.
Later, he was transferred to the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail.
Cardenas was stationed at Norfolk, Virginia, and was a sailor on the USS George H.W. Busch. He faces charges of felony assault of an officer, indecent exposure, intentional damage and obstruction of justice.
At the time of Cardenas’ arrest, he had five outstanding warrants pending, one of which was for felonious assault on a police officer.
He has since been released on bond.
