Nude Beggar With Panties On Head Arrested

Man Had Nothing Except Thong On Head, Police Say

A man who police said was naked except for a pair of woman's thong panties he was wearing on his head is the first person arrested under Boulder's new public nudity law.

Police said that Glenn Ford, 55, was standing nude on an offramp of Highway 36 during the Thursday afternoon rush hour. Officers located him at the Baseline Road exit, according to a police blotter.

Officers said Ford appeared to be intoxicated and refused to put on clothes he had stashed nearby. Officers tied a jacket around his waist before putting him in a patrol car, police said.

Ford, a known transient, was arrested on suspicion of violating Boulder's ordinance prohibiting public nudity. The new law carries a fine of up to $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail.

Ford was still in jail Friday, under a $250 bond.
