Berlin police

This young man was very, very excited to ride the train.

Fair warning, scofflaws. If you commit an alleged petty crime on the Berlin subway, the police will not only chase you for months but will use the most embarrassing possible photos to do so, too.

Such is the case with this dude caught pulling at a train’s interior like a furious monkey in July 2015. For some reason the cops are only now releasing the hilarious video stills—hoping to catch him for “property damage”—as well as this call for information (via Google Translate):

With the publication of pictures the police Berlin is looking for a young man who had stepped out a window of a subway train in Zehlendorf on July 14, 2015. After analyzing the video recordings of the SNB was seen that the previously unknown 12 o'clock on a train line was traveling U3 and had committed here shortly before the Krumme Lanke Railway Station, the property damage. He was accompanied by four other young men or teenagers and a young woman.

Proving the Berlin police department’s media savvy, the German press have spread the photos far and wide. Urbanshit dubs the top one “the mug shot of the year if not more,” and Business Punk has gone so far as to give him a nickname: “criminal Tarzan.”
