A completely naked woman calling herself the "goddess of the train" snarled movement of a CTA Red Line train over the weekend. 

The incident and very NSFW photos were posted to ChicagoNow blog CTA Tattler on Saturday afternoon. The blog notes the nude woman got on the train at Granville Avenue just before 1 p.m., and referred to herself as the "goddess of the train." The Tattler notes the incident is what likely prompted an alert from the CTA. 

"Some 95th-bound Red Line trains are operating with residual delays after a disturbance on the train at Granville" a tweet from the CTA said. "Service is resuming." 

WGN notes the woman reportedly slapped a few passengers and announced her intention to take over the train. The 31-year-old was taken into police custody and admitted to the hospital, WGN reports. Police said the woman is mentally ill.
