Boulder makes 1st arrest under its new nudity law

BOULDER, Colo. – Boulder police say homeless man who was panhandling on a highway off-ramp wearing only a pair of panties on his head is the first person to be arrested under the city’s new public nudity law.

Fifty-five-year-old Glenn Ford received an 8-day jail sentence Friday after his arrest Thursday afternoon. Police say several motorists called to complain about Ford.

Police say Ford appeared to be drunk refused to get dressed.

Boulder’s law went into effect May 6. It prohibits anyone older than 10 from showing their genitals in public or in private property where they may be seen. Women can still be topless in public.

Without the new law, police say nude offenders faced stricter punishment, including having to register as a sex offender.
