We've heard of cracks in the road, but this is ridiculous.

Police detained a naked man who streaked across the Eisenhower Thursday, reports the Sun-Times.

The "totally naked" man had set fire to a sign at 1:30 a.m. near the expressway at Garfield Park before running onto the L tracks at the Pulaski Blue Line stop, said police. From there, he reportedly streaked across the lanes of the Ike.

And before you start cracking jokes, the Sun-Times reports that he was not an overzealous Blackhawks fan.

Besides, the Blackhawks inspired men to show off their beards, not their rears.

Police took the man to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital for mental observation, according to the Sun-Times.
