Naked People Invade Butte, Montana

Police were inundated with an abundance of naked and partially undressed people over the weekend. Officers are not sure what caused the mass disrobing. One of the naked men told police God told him to take off his clothes. Just after getting off the bus in Butte, a 20-year-old Utah man got naked. Justin Allen is accused of then kneeling within view of many people with a large stick in his hand Saturday evening. “He said he was talking to God, who told him to be naked. God said not to cooperate with police,” Undersheriff George Skuletich said while reviewing the report. Allen would not let police dress him. He appeared to be under the influence of some substance, officers noted/Montana Standard. More here.

Question: If this happened in Portland, it wouldn't be a big deal, esp. about the time of the annual Naked Bike Ride. But Butte? Have you ever encountered a naked person unexpectedly in a public place?
