Naked swimmer evades police in Tokyo palace moat
A bald, naked man who said he was a British tourist went swimming in the moat of Japan's Imperial Palace on Tuesday, climbing the palace wall, throwing rocks and splashing water at police before being taken into custody.
Television footage showed the tall man getting out of the water at one point, chasing police with a rock and a plastic construction site pole.
He then went back to the murky water and swam across to the other side of the moat, climbing up the 8-meter (9-yard) stone wall of the palace.
He was caught by two policemen, after a chase media said lasted for an hour and a half.
