A Florida man was arrested after allegedly walking naked in his neighbourhood park. Rolf Braun, 73, was charged with indecent exposure and resisting arrest Sunday at Recreation Plantation RV Resort in Lady Lake. He defended his act by saying “there are nude beaches in Florida”, according to a police affidavit.
Officers with Lady Lake Police Department responded to the location on Highway 466 after being altered to a “male walking the road nude”, as per a Fox report citing the affidavit.
Two witnesses who reported the incident said they saw a man, whom police later identified as Braun, was walking “completely” naked in front of his recreational vehicle’s lot.
When an officer knocked on the door of his camper, Braun answered it while “wearing a T-shirt as shorts”, his genitals being where the neck goes.
The affidavit further states that he became uncooperative during the arrest. Braun reportedly continued to argue his case, insisting that since Florida has nude beaches, he should be allowed to be nude in his own neighbourhood.
He was booked into the Lake County Jail, where is currently being held on a $2,000 bond.
It comes after a half-naked Florida man crashed his car into a jail. Joseph Leedy, 40, clad only in a woman's blouse, drove straight into the Martin County Jail lobby.
After the crash, he exited the vehicle, then threw rubber snakes and mobile phones onto the ground, proceeding to douse the car with motor - all while he was naked from the waist down, Martin County Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy John Budensiek said.
The motives behind Leedy staging the bizarre series of events remain unclear, though he allegedly gave threats, with comments about former President Donald Trump.
Thankfully, no one was injured. He was arrested and now faces multiple charges, including aggravated assault on an officer.
