Dancing drunk lay on Metro track

A DRUNK man disrupted Metro services when he lay down on a subway track after dancing on the platform and swearing at staff, police said.

Metro police said the man, who they did not name, was detained for disturbing subway operations.

The man entered Metro Line 3's Jinshajiang Road Station at 10:50pm on last Thursday, police said. He started dancing and cursing at Metro staff who asked him to leave.

But he suddenly sat on the edge of the platform as a train entered the station, forcing it perform an emergency stop.

When police arrived, he leapt onto the track and lay down. Services were stopped for 10 minutes before the man was hauled up by officers.

When he finally sobered up, the man told the police that he had attended a dinner with relatives and friends that night and had consumed "a lot of liquor." He was remorseful, police said. The man began serving a five-day detention from February 11.

Police said they would strengthen checks on such behavior. Drunk people are not allowed on public transport.
