Flasher stripped ‘to cool down’
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.
