Wednesday, July 18, 10:06 am Police finally let nudity-loving hiker roam free.
Stephen Gough, aka the “Naked Rambler,” is fond of strolling sans clothes across the U.K., a hobby which has landed him in frequent trouble with the law. The temperature-impervious former Marine was recently released from jail after serving a total of 657 days for favoring his birthday suit. Every time he has been released previously, police have arrested him within 60 seconds for exiting his jail naked. This time, however, Gough promptly stripped off upon leaving prison and Scottish police finally looked the other way, leaving him a free man. Gough, 53, now plans to see his kids and his mother, presumably unclothed, saying, "I am not going to give up. Stay naked is the word."
