Naked unicyclist arrested in Texas

KEMAH, Texas (AP) — Police say a man arrested in a Southeast Texas city for riding his unicycle in the nude was distracting drivers and creating a hazard.

Kemah police Chief Greg Rikard says 45-year-old Joseph Glynn Farley was not intoxicated or impaired when he was arrested Wednesday on a bridge in the city 20 miles southeast of Houston.

Rikard says Farley had been falling off the unicycle and into traffic.

Farley told officers that he liked the feeling of riding without his clothes, which were found at the base of the bridge.

Police charged Farley, of Clear Lake, with misdemeanor indecent exposure. Bond is set at $1,500.

Online jail records did not list an attorney for Farley.

‘American Pie’ inspired teens’ naked run

OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Four Utah teens armed with a BB gun told deputies they were inspired by a scene from an “American Pie” movie when they went running naked through an Ogden-area neighborhood.

Authorities said Wednesday the teens were spotted streaking in the residential community about 45 minutes north of Salt Lake City at about 2 a.m. Sunday.

When a deputy responded, a 17-year-old girl ducked behind a tree, while the three teenage boys kept running and were found shortly after.

The teens said they brought the BB gun because they feared they would be attacked by deer during the jog.

Deputies notified the teens' parents and let them off with a warning.

The 2006 film “American Pie: The Naked Mile” features a high school student who wants to join a college campus' tradition of running a mile naked.

Cops: Mass. man shaved nude on beach

SALISBURY, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man is facing lewd charges after lifeguards say he refuses to stop shaving himself while nude on a beach.

The Eagle Tribune reports that Christopher Axford was arrested Monday on a beach in Salisbury.

According to a police report, the 45-year-old was shaving his armpits while his shorts were pulled down to his shins when police arrived to the scene.

Axford, who police said is homeless, was charged with lewd, wanton and lascivious conduct, public drinking and disorderly conduct and release on personal recognizance. Less than 12 hours after his release, Axford was arrested again on charges he stole a tip jar from a pizzeria.

He is being held without bail pending a pretrial hearing scheduled for Aug. 31. It was unclear if he had an attorney.

Woman strips naked, steals cab in Louisiana

COVINGTON, La. (AP) — Police in Louisiana say a woman stripped in the back seat of a cab, demanded the driver take her to her home state of Michigan and when he refused, stole his cab. 

Covington Police Capt. Jack West told The Times-Picayune that the driver picked up 29-year-old Jennifer Gille of St. Clair Shores, Mich., about 1 a.m. Sunday. West says Gille refused to get out when they reached their destination, stripped and demanded the cabbie take her home.

West says the driver went to a police station for help and when inside, Gille drove off.

Police found the cab parked about a block away and Gille was still naked. Police booked her on charges of unauthorized use of a movable vehicle and obscenity.

She was released from jail late Tuesday on a $75 signature bond. No phone listing for her could be found in either state.

‘All the nudes that’s fit to sprint’

A news release from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office calls it a clear case of “all the nudes that’s fit to sprint.”

A 53-year-old Spokane Valley man was cited for indecent exposure Thursday after a police officer found him naked and fondling himself in front of traffic on East Sprague Avenue.

Gene F. Young ran when he saw Officer Chuck Sciortino approaching about 9:50 p.m., and Sciortino caught up with him when he fell in parking lot next to an auto parts store.

Young, who police believe was intoxicated, was issued a citation for indecent exposure before being allowed to walk to his home about 50 yards away in the 4700 block of East First Avenue.

He was sentenced to 10 days in jail in August for the same crime, according to news archives show.
