Updated: September 1, 2013 12:35PM

A naked man was Tasered by police Friday night after he jumped on and shattered the window of a Mercedes on the Near West, Chicago Police said.

Officers were summoned to the 1400 block of West Randolph shortly about 8 p.m., after people called 911 to complain about a naked man jumping on cars, police said.

They found the 22-year-old still naked, sitting in a puddle of water, police said. The owner of a nearby 2008 Mercedes said the man had shattered the front windshield of the vehicle.

The man allegedly became combative with police trying to arrest him, and officers Tasered him, police said.

He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital for treatment, police said. No one else was hurt.

The man may have been under the influence of narcotics, police said.

The arrest happened a block from Union Park, where the North Coast Music Festival is taking place this weekend.

Charges were pending against him as of early Sunday.
