Police arrested a man who paraded nude through a busy street during rush hour traffic and attempted to trade in his bike for merchandise at Ft. Lauderdale sex shop.
The man was first spotted by witnesses who saw him riding a bike, naked, in the area of NE 6th Avenue and Wilton Drive, according to the Wilton Manors Police Department.
He then entered an adult store, RockHard Lovestuff, took a pair of assless undies off the shelf, put them on, and told employees that he wanted to give them his bike in exchange for them.
The man then left the store without paying, leaving his bike and headed back to Wilton Drive, walking up and down the busy street. He then removed his underwear and police arrived at the scene.
The man, at first, said his name was Michael Jackson. Then would only say he was “John Smith”.
Well honestly, I am surprised to see this in the news and, frankly, to be reporting it. I just assume this sort of thing happens in Ft. Lauderdale every single day.
