Man who claims his 'clothes kept falling off' arrested in Lacey

A naked man strolling up and down a Lacey street Wednesday morning was arrested by police after multiple warnings to cover up, the Tacoma News Tribune reports. According to the News Tribune, the 39-year-old was spotted walking naked on Pacific Avenue between the Interstate 5 interchange and Lilly Road. Police dispatchers became so inundated with 911 calls reporting the man, responders asked callers if they were calling about the "naked man on Pacific," dispatch supervisor Tammy Clark told the News Tribune. Olympia police officers spoke to the man three times and issued two warnings before arresting him for disturbing the peace, the News Tribune reported. Olympia Police Sgt. Rich Allen told the News Tribune that multiple bystanders offered him clothes as he walked past. "He was naked and bystanders had tried covering him up with sleeping bags and offered him articles of clothing to put on," Allen told the News Tribune. "When the officers showed up he'd put on the article and when officers left, he'd take it off again." The man said "his clothes kept falling off," Allen told the News Tribune. The man tried to punch a corrections officer during his arrest, but the corrections officer ducked the assault.
