Wonder if the size of the fine (about $800 US dollars) had anything to do with, uh, his "size"?
Alexander Purser, 23, was convicted of using threatening words or behaviour, likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress after a day-long trial at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court yesterday.Acton: Naked cyclist told to pay £500 after riding through village wearing only trainers - News - East Anglian Daily Times
Purser of Vicarage Lane, Acton, had denied causing alarm or distress, claiming he had ridden naked around Acton near Sudbury on June 7 last year because he thought it would be ‘very funny’.
The court heard Purser had been driving along Waldingfield Road in the village when he spotted a community speed watch group in a layby on the side of the road.
Godfried Duah, prosecuting, told the trial Purser had driven home, stripped off all his clothes except some trainers and his spectacles, taken a bike then ridden back towards the speed trap group.
The court heard police received several 999 calls from concerned members of the public, who feared children at the nearby Acton Primary School might see the naked man.
