INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. - Save for the full beard and tattoos, Jon Erik Meyer was naked.
Which wouldn't have been of note if Meyer, 22, was in the confines of a private residence. Problem is, the nude dude was on a sidewalk in the central business district of Sebastian, according to a recently released arrest affidavit.
Meyer told Sebastian police he'd been walking from Columbus, Ga., and was going to Miami.
The case began about 11:56 p.m. Nov. 11 as an officer was dispatched to Main Street and U.S. 1 regarding "a naked suspicious person walking south on the sidewalk," an affidavit states.
A corporal reported seeing Meyer, saying he was "completely naked" when she arrived.
Meyer seemed confused and didn't know where he was. He did say he was walking from Columbus, Ga., to Miami -- a more than 600 mile trip.
"When asked where his clothes were he stated that he took them all off while he was walking on the sidewalk," the affidavit states.
The affidavit didn't state whether Meyer walked au naturel beginning in Georgia or in Florida.
Meyer, who smelled slightly of alcohol, said he'd taken a cough suppressant.
Meyer, listed as homeless, was arrested on a disorderly intoxication charge and taken to the Indian River County Jail.
