Officers from Derbyshire Police have fined a man after they found him sitting naked in his car without a reasonable excuse.
The male explained to officers that he had taken a number of wrong turnings after setting off from his home address to find some wet wipes.
Not satisfied that the male was making an ‘essential’ journey, he was hit with a fixed penalty notice.
Speaking about the bizarre encounter via their Facebook page, a spokesperson for the force said:
“Naked man found messing in a Mazda”.
“Naturally, officers challenged the nude male, asking him why he was in a closed car park,” they wrote.
“However, the male was unable to provide a reasonable excuse of why he was stark naked in the car park during the height of a national lockdown.”
The man was discovered by the Melbourne and Mercia Safer Neighbourhood Team, in a car park near Calke.
Officers confirmed that the male did not have any mental health problems.
The male was also given a Community Protection Notice regarding his lack of clothes.
