Costa Rica News – If you were in San Pedro in Friday you might have gotten an eye full. I think at least a few heads were turned when a naked man decided it was a good time to run around the streets of Costa Rica.
A man, described as thin and about 30 years of age, walked around naked Friday morning in the area of the Hispanidad fountain in San Pedro (in front of Mall San Pedro), for about 45 minutes before being detained by police.
According to the police report, the man was stark naked in public from 6:45am to 7:28am (when police arrived) on Friday morning.
The press office of the Ministry of Public Security (MSP) said the man was arrested for disturbing public order.
“He was given a ticket for committing an offence against the integrity of the people,” said the press report. I guess not many wanted to start there work day with this image in their head.
As of Friday afternoon the man continued in police custody, at the Montes de Oca (San Pedro) police station, waiting for some family member to come for him.
The question is will someone have the ability to tuck away the shame that they are related to this man in order to come get him. Let’s hopethey bring him some clothes.
It is not known if the man has a mental problem.
