(LONDON) — An American visiting Russia was arrested after allegedly climbing into a children’s library in Moscow, a local television station reported.

William Russel Nycum had been living with friends when he was detained on May 3, REN TV, a local station, reported on Monday.

Nycum allegedly climbed into the library and began to undress after drinking with his friends at a bar, the station reported.

The station published a video that it said showed Nycum near the library, along with photos that it said showed his belongings inside the library. One photo appeared to show a shattered window.

The station also published a photo that appeared to show Nycum’s visa to enter Russia.

A U.S. soldier was separately detained in Vladivostok, Russia, on Thursday on charges of criminal misconduct, according to the U.S. Army.
