Police: Naked marathoner arrested
CINCINNATI — Police say they arrested a man for running naked in a marathon race through downtown Cincinnati.
Thirty-five-year-old Brett Henderson of St. Paris in western Ohio faces charges of public indecency and obstructing official business. Police tell media outlets he refused to stop running during Sunday morning’s Flying Pig Marathon, so they halted him with a stun gun.
Henderson’s mother Lee said Monday that he had borrowed a pair of running shorts from his father, but they kept slipping down as he ran. She says he kept running without shorts because he was determined to complete the race he had trained for.
No attorney was listed for him. He was expected to appear in a Hamilton County court later Monday.
