Nude motorcyclist arrested for DUI

Police in Florida said a man spotted riding his motorcycle without any clothes on was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.

Marion County Sheriff's Capt. Mike Rolls said he saw the man, identified as Dante Krauss, 45, of Dunnellon, riding without any clothing or a helmet early Tuesday, the Ocala (Fla.) Star-Banner reported Wednesday.

Rolls said he pulled Krauss over after the nude biker ran a stop light. He said Krauss told him he did not remember where he was coming from and the last thing he remembered was going to a Hooters restaurant. Rolls said Krauss admitted he had been drinking.

Krauss, who Rolls said had no explanation for being naked, failed a field sobriety test and was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence. He was taken to the Marion County Jail and released on bond later Tuesday.
