Flasher stripped ‘to cool down’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BLOKE seen walk­ing around naked from the waist down told po­lice he had re­moved his trousers and pants as he was feel­ing hot dur­ing the sum­mer heat­wave.

A mem­ber of the pub­lic saw An­thony Richard Charles Mayne, 65, walk­ing past a pub’s beer gar­den on July 9.

Upon his ar­rest, he said he’d re­moved his cloth­ing near the Oc­tagon The­atre in Yeovil to cool down in the hot weather.

Mayne pleaded not guilty to in­ten­tion­ally ex­pos­ing his gen­i­tals in­tend­ing that some­one would see them and be caused alarm or dis­tress.

He had been or­dered to re­turn to Som­er­set Mag­is­trates Court to stand trial but failed to turn up and was found guilty in his ab­sence.

A war­rant with­out bail has been is­sued for Mayne’s ar­rest.
