A Sydney police spokeswoman said the naked man ran across the Sydney Harbor Bridge around 6 p.m. Tuesday and turned on "a number of fire hydrants" along the way, The (Sydney) Telegraph reported Wednesday.
"After a foot chase across the bridge he was apprehended,'' the spokeswoman said.
The man was taken to a local hospital for assessment. Authorities said there were lengthy traffic delays while emergency services were on the scene.
