Jogging Nude: A New Kind of Draft

By M Dee Dubroff     Jul 30, 2007 in Lifestyle
Is being nude one of our inalienable albeit somewhat drafty rights? Well, according to our naked fellow jogger below, if it isn’t, it certainly should be. Read on for his drafty tale, but cover up please! It’s a different kind of cold outside.
A Detroit man named Russell Rotta, aged 49, was arrested after a caller reported seeing a naked man running in the southbound lane of U.S. Highway 127 in Blackman Township, about 70 miles west of Detroit. Rotta was sentenced to 30 days in jail for taking his morning constitutional while wearing only a stocking cap, gloves and running shoes with reflective tape. He told the arresting officers:
“This is the one wild, crazy thing that I do that makes me feel alive.”
Rotta confessed that he has been running free and naked since he was a teenager and that he runs about 6 miles every day, weather permitting. He said that he generally confined his running to open fields and wooded areas away from roads under the cover of darkness (around 4 AM) to conceal his activities from his wife.
He pleaded guilty to a charge of indecent exposure in Jackson County district court. Judge Joseph Filip sentenced him to 24 months probation and $1,500 in fines and court costs.
Do YOU sense a chill in the air?
