A little background music while you read ...
From today's Oregonian:
"Beaverton police arrested a 23-year-old man this morning and accused him of disorderly conduct because he was walking around naked.
Officers said Russell David Persons told them he knew he was naked but didn't think it was a problem.
Police first received a call about Persons about 7:13 a.m. when a school bus driver said a naked adult man was walking in front of Five Oaks Middle School on Northwest 173rd Avenue.
The driver said there were children on the bus who saw the man.
Five Oaks was placed in lockdown and officers were dispatched to the area. Washington County deputies found Persons near Northwest 173rd and Fieldstone. He was reportedly wearing socks, shoes and a backpack -- but nothing else.
Police said Persons told them that he had just left a friend's house and had decided to go for a walk. He also indicated that he didn't think it was a problem for him to be mostly unclothed, officers said ..."
They took him to jail.
Took him to jail? Really?
I wonder if there might be a psych consult in his future? Okay to walk past a middle school nekkid ... ?
Or, maybe, whatever he was smoking was really primo ...
