• That’s not a nightcrawler! A father fishing with his two sons in Spokane, Washington was forced to alert authorities after he noticed 54-year-old Dean H. Meginniss fishing in the buff. Meginniss even stood up in full view of the children at one point as the father and sons drove by him in their boat. Police originally only told the man to put on some clothes and he did so, but after running a background check, it was discovered that Meginniss had an outstanding warrant related to a stalking issue. Naked Fisher Guy was arrested on that warrant and was also charged with indecent exposure for good measure. [azcentral]
