Naked run on $30 bet costs plenty more
A man ran naked across frozen Silver Lake on a $30 bet yesterday, but the cold streak cost him much more when he was busted by a Kenosha County sheriff's deputy watching from a nearby boat launch.
In this report released today, Sgt. Gil Benn, public information officer for the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department, wrote:
"The long winter has finally taken its toll.
"On 3-13-08 at approx. 1620 hrs., Dep. Zarletti was parked by the Silver Lake DNR boat launch when he was alerted by a citizen that a male was running across the frozen lake in the nude. Dep. Zarletti located the subject and identified him as John F. Greely (18) a local resident. Greely was wearing nothing but socks, and he was sober. He reported that he streaked on a 30 dollar bet. Dep. Zarletti issued him a county ordinance citation ($753.00 bond) for lewd and lascivious behavior. It's unknown whether he recovered on his bet.
"Spring is juuuuust around the corner."
