ARRESTED by the local police for driving a car in the nude, a man in France told the officers that he was trying to avoid creasing his trousers. When asked why he had also removed his underpants, the man replied that he never wore them. Later, in court, the prosecuting counsel asked for a three months suspended jail sentence and a fine of EUR 500. The judges opted for a 15 days suspended sentence and a fine of EUR 250.
The court’s sentence suggests that it is time for French men’s underwear brands to start lobbying for stronger measures against naked driving.
