 Here's hoping Yeiner Garizabalo wears more to court Tuesday than he allegedly did to a San Francisco subway station in May.

When last we saw him, the 24-year-old appeared in a bizarre video where he -- sans clothing -- performed acrobatics off subway equipment, then went after commuters trying to catch a train.

Garizabalo faces seven charges following the outrageous May 10 incident at a Bay Area Rapid Transit station, a spokesman for the San Francisco District Attorney's office said Monday.

A video of the incident surfaced last week and quickly went viral.

In it, a glistening man with a wild mane of hair turns fare gates into balance beams, doing splits and back flips buck-naked. Startled commuters flee as he dashes across the station, attacking people at random.

Last week, police said Garizabalo had been arrested, given a mental evaluation, charged with battery and released.

He now stands accused of two felony counts of false imprisonment, four misdemeanor accounts of battery, and one misdemeanor account of sexual battery for the incident, spokesman Alex Bastian said.

A judge set Garizabalo's bail at $100,000 after he was re-arrested Monday. He will be arraigned Tuesday afternoon, Bastian said.
