Police: Man unable to explain public nudity


The Clinton Herald

---- — IOWA CITY — Police say an Iowa City man found naked over the weekend was unable to explain why he was baring it all in public.

Iowa City police say they received several reports Saturday night about a naked man walking around the city. They later found 54-year-old Alan James Ryan asleep on a porch.

Police say Ryan smelled of alcohol and was disoriented when approached.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports Ryan was unable to explain his nudity or where he had been earlier that night. He refused a preliminary breath test.

A police complaint says Ryan was able to find his clothes, though it did not elaborate.

Ryan has been charged with a simple misdemeanor count of public intoxication. Court records do not list an attorney.
