A Manhattan man went wild in Central Park yesterday, smashing a police van with a tree branch and swimming out to an island in the Harlem Meer, where he spent 90 minutes singing and shouting before cops — 15 of them — nabbed him, according to the New York Post.

Alionme Dieng, 25, began his rampage at 10:30 a.m., and stripped to his undies on the islet, witnesses said.

After ranting more, he dove back in to the water.

“He went in with shorts,” said witness James Miller, “but he didn’t come out with shorts.”

  1. This guy approached my 3 year old son and as I pulled my son away from him Dieng took one of my son's red sneakers, mumbled something about crips and ran away barefoot. Clearly something wrong with him. I was able to recover the sneaker from the water after he had jumped in and swam to the island. Craziness!
