Naked bean bag game turns into hide and seek with suspect

LE SUEUR, Minn. — Tossing bean bags is a normal summertime activity. But if you’re naked and playing outside, expect the police to break up the game.

Acting on a report of people drinking and running around naked outside, two police officers stopped by to check out the activity.

“Upon arrival I observed a man in the backyard playing a yard game commonly known as ‘bean bags’ or ‘corn hole’ completely naked with his genitals in full view of passing traffic,” officer David Blackstock reported. Noticing the police car, the man ran inside the home.

The officers approached the front door and yelled for the man to come out, but after a while he just turned out the lights inside the house.

In a search of the property, the policeman came across some clothing and a wallet, which they took as evidence. A citation for indecent exposure, a misdemeanor, was mailed to the man last week.
