Police Blotter

People Can’t Even Run In Marathons Butt Naked Anymore Without Being Tased

Pictured above is the mug shot of one Brett Henderson, a thirty-five year old marathon enthusiast from St. Paris, Ohio. He was arrested during Sunday morning’s Flying Pig Marathon in Cincinnati and charged with public indecency and obstructing official business after police were forced to use a stun gun on him after he refused to stop running the race butt-ass naked.

And, as things often go when a man is busted for nude marathon running, his mother came to his defense with a perfectly reasonable excuse for why he insisted continuing his marathon run sans clothing (via the Chicago Sun-Times):

Henderson’s mother Lee said Monday that he had borrowed a pair of running shorts from his father, but they kept slipping down as he ran. She says he kept running without shorts because he was determined to complete the race he had trained for.

I can see it now: Henderson, running his tail off, his junk flopping and swaying to and fro in the breeze, saying to himself, “Well I just can’t stop now. I’ve trained too hard for this to give up now! Enjoy the view, everyone. It’s how the Ancient Greeks did it, for crying out loud! What’s this? Police officers? Tasers? What the fungus?”

ZAP! I only wonder what area of Henderson’s naked body the fuzz elected to tase him at. Yowsers. Talk about a shock to the system, amirite?
