Authorities arrest man for nudeness

Published 11:01am Thursday, May 23, 2013

A 35-year-old man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after reportedly walking around naked in Lidgerwood, N.D., according to a news release from the Richland County Sheriff’s Office.

A Sheriff’s deputy responded to a call at 3:22 p.m. of a naked man walking around Park Avenue West near the Lidgerwood Pool and arrested him on arrival.

As the Lidgerwood man was being taken to the Richland County Jail, he reportedly broke a rear window out of the patrol car and escaped about seven miles north of Lidgerwood running on foot. He was found about 45 minutes later about a 1/2 mile from where he escaped.

He was taken to Sanford Hospital in Fargo for evaluation after being booked in Richland County Jail. Charges are pending and include disorderly conduct, escape and resisting arrest.
