I suppose if you're going to be naked in public, you might as well be trying to get some exercise while you're at it! That's, at least, the claim of Rev. Robert Whipkey of Fredrick, Colorado who was caught on a local high school track running an hour before sunrise in his birthday suit. Why? Well, he didn't think anyone would be around at that hour. Here's more from The Denver Channel:
He (Rev. Whipkey) told officers he sweats profusely if he wears clothing while jogging. "I know what I did was wrong," he said in the report. Whipkey did not return phone messages. His attorney, Doug Tisdale, told the Longmont Times-Call that Whipkey had no comment.
Whipkey, 53, was arrested June 22 in this small town about 20 miles north of Denver. An officer said he saw a naked man walking down the street at 4:35 a.m. The U.S. Naval Observatory Web site said sunrise that day in Frederick was 5:31 a.m.
The officer said when he shined his flashlight at the man, he covered himself with a piece of clothing he was carrying.
It was not clear why the June incident was not reported by the newspaper until this week.
