Naked fishing nets a ride to the Spokane calaboose

The wildlife at West Medical Lake on Sunday was maybe a little wilder than the law will allow, deputies said today.

A father and two sons reported seeing a naked man fishing along the shore while they boated nearby.

Spokane County deputies arrested Dean H. Meginniss, 54, of Spokane Valley, on a felony charge of indecent exposure following the 2:15 p.m. incident.

Staff at a nearby resort said they had been hearing complaints for weeks about a naked man fishing at the lake.

Meginniss was also wanted on an arrest warrant for stalking, and his rap sheet includes a conviction for indecent exposure in 2009.
