West Memphis Man Convicted of Naked Neighborhood Runs

JANUARY 27, 2005 - Posted at 3:42 p.m. CST

 

WEST MEMPHIS, AR - An Arkansas judge has put an end to a man's naked neighborhood jaunts.

Fate Patterson of West Memphis was convicted Wednesday of indecent exposure, fleeing and resisting arrest.

Police had received reports for several months from a West Memphis neighborhood of a man jogging in the nude before they arrested the 39-year-old Patterson on January 11, an unseasonably warm day.

Officers said they saw Patterson jogging naked from the waist down and ordered him to stop.  When he kept running, officers used a stun gun to stop him.

Patterson was supposed to have a mental evaluation, but Municipal Court Judge William P. Rainey canceled it when Patterson admitted he entered a Florida woman's home naked two years ago.

The judge sentenced Patterson to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
