Fergus Falls man who wore loincloth while mowing lawn arrested

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. - Fergus Falls man who allegedly wore a loincloth to mow his lawn was arrested for disorderly conduct on Wednesday afternoon.

Police were alerted to the alleged behavior of the 43-year-old man shortly before 5 p.m., when a neighbor called police to report that the man was out clad in a loincloth and swearing near a day care with children present. He had been asked to stop.

The suspect allegedly had partially exposed himself while mowing the lawn, and when confronted by police, he reportedly would not comply and continued to shout obscenities, resulting in his arrest.

The man also had been cited earlier in the day for making harassing phone calls after leaving phone messages with obscenities for the police department and at least one city official.
