Valley Head man arrested for waving flag in the nude near highway

FORT PAYNE, Ala. (AP) — A Valley Head man was arrested for walking naked along a highway while waving an American flag.

The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department arrested Gerald Lynn Kelley, 52, and charged him with public lewdness in connection with the incident, the Fort Payne Times-Journal reported Tuesday.

DeKalb Deputy Mike James said deputies were sent to Hammondville about 3 p.m. Sunday after receiving calls about two men walking nude along U.S. 11, just inside the town limits.

James said Kelley, who was allegedly drunk, was wearing only a cowboy hat and boots.

The other man, reportedly clad in the same attire as Kelley and carrying an American flag, could not be found. Police reports show that Kelley and the other man had been at a party that got out of hand. [...]

Ya think?

But at least we don't have to question his patriotism.

If he had only told them it was a protest against the war the ACLU and George Soros would have taken his case.

Obviously global warming is to blame.

I hope he was using sunscreen.

It doesn't say, but at least he did have on a hat.
