Man arrested after caught on video riding on outside of train

An Australian man was arrested after he was caught clinging to the outside of a moving train over the weekend.

The CBC reports the unnamed 23-year-old man climbed onto the back of a Public Transport Authority (PTA) train and held on as it traveled through Perth, Australia on Saturday.

The train reached speeds up to 62 mph.

Several people driving on a highway next to the train tracks witnessed the man holding on to the train's windshield wiper.

When the train arrived at a station, the man climbed down and entered one of the cars. Police were waiting at the next stop and arrested the man.

A PTA official says the man will undergo a mental health assessment before charges are filed.
