Yesterday morning, in New York City’s Times Square, a man took his clothes off, shook his penis and yelled about Donald Trump, fashion photographers and his mom.
The hourlong incident stopped vehicle and foot traffic in the already-congested area and only ended when he jumped 20 feet off of the Times Square bleachers. He broke his arm and missed a giant airbag that had been set up to catch him.

During his escapade, he performed naked aerobics on top on the Times Square bleachers. He taunted police officers and spit at them, pulled on his penis and shook his butt at them. He told the officers to, “Get that bitch, Debbie! I want to talk to Debbie!”
He also yelled, “Donald Trump, where the fuck are you?!”
The New York Post reported that a friend of McClean’s said, “He looks like he had a total breakdown. I don’t know if it was a super amount of insane drugs or if he lost his mind somehow.”
McClean has had a very successful modeling career and has walked on fashion runways in Milan and New York City for brands such as Ralph Lauren and Tod’s. He has also appeared in the Thai versions of GQ, Out and Harper’s Bazaar, according to the photos that appear on his website.

He graduated from the prestigious Stuyvesant High School in New York City and, according to social media, attended both Columbia University and Amherst College. His dad is Vincent McClean, former New York representative for the UN Office of Drugs and Crime.
His Facebook profile shows a picture of him with an older Asian woman and a caption in Thai that says, “Love.” Commenters on the photo write in both English and Thai. One of the comments called the woman Vipa, she could be the mom he yelled about loving?
He was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment and psychiatric evaluation. According to police, he will be charged with indecent exposure once released.
