Yes, it’s the inevitable link to the “Man Arrested for Being Naked in His Own Kitchen” story. Radley Balko writes:
Springfield, Virginia resident Eric Williamson was arrested and charged with indecent exposure yesterday for failing to put on any clothes after getting up at 5:30 am to make some coffee. A woman and her 7-year-old daughter had cut across Williamson’s front yard and saw him through his kitchen window.
If convicted, Williamson could be fined $2,000 and spend a year in jail.
Fairfax police say Williamson wanted to be seen naked. Which I guess means Williamson’s front yard is a pretty popular spot at 5:30 in the morning.
As Glenn Reynolds adds, “Why isn’t she charged with being a Peeping Tom? I’ll bet if the genders were reversed . . . .”
Update: At least one member of the distaff side of the starboard Blogosphere concurs with the Professor’s opinion.
