During the stand-off, the shaven headed man, who appeared to be in his 30s or 40s, had been yelling at onlookers and pacing up and down the billboard.

Adelaide Now

A man is undergoing a medical assessment at Royal Perth Hospital after climbing on to the top of a billboard near Perth's main train station yesterday afternoon, naked and armed with a gun.

ABC news

And an alleged video of the man walking around in search of an entrance to the billboard.

I knew about this yesterday when it was happeneing but I delayed posting it up for you ATSers; I wanted to wait to see what the News said about it first... but, there was nothing, they didn't even hint of a situation.

Which I found weird, things like this hardly ever happen in Australia and it was much more interesting/important than our Prime minister speaking about an upcoming election in 3 months time.

Thank goodness no one was hurt, But it does make for an amusing story.

p.s This is my first thread post ever on ATS, hope I did well.

EDIT: I fear I may have posted this thread in the wrong place

yeah I saw this on the news this morning.

Sounds like he was in a manic psychotic state.

He probably had something pretty cool in mind when he went up there though

I wonder what possessed him to get naked

I can't wait to hear the official story on this. Hopefully tonight it'll be on the news and we can know why he went up there.

I refuse to go into detail, but lets just say; freeing yourself from all material possessions can be quite liberating.
