• The worst part was when he was arrested, they had to pry him off the seat with a crowbar. Richard Irby (I’m sure he goes by Dick) was arrested in Tallahassee, Florida and charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct after the 55-year-old was seen riding around town wearing only a thong. “According to the Tallahassee Democrat, an officer who responded to a mobile home park on Aug. 17 was told that a resident saw Irby walking in a thong. The resident said Irby’s genitals were exposed.” Yowsers. Do you want to know what makes this even more disturbing, if that is possible? Pictures, of course! A photo of his mugshot and him in action on his bicycle after the jump.
