Naked ‘goddess of the train’ arrested on CTA Red Line

Riders on the CTA’s red line on Chicago’s North Side were delayed Saturday when a naked woman entered a train and caused a disturbance.

Witnesses say the woman got on a Southbound train at the Granville station just before 1 pm.

As riders waited for police to arrive, the woman reportedly claimed to be the “goddess of the train” and slapped and yelled at several people.

A Chicago Police spokesman says the 31-year-old woman suffers from mental illness.

She was taken into police custody and taken to the hospital.
