Fire captain denies entering 7-Eleven in the nude

A Massachusetts firefighter police say walked naked into a Rhode Island convenience store on a dare to buy a soda said it never happened.

Lynnfield fire Capt. John Walsh was charged with disorderly conduct after an employee at the Middletown store reported the nude customer April 3.

Walsh and a woman, both clothed, were pulled over a short time later. The police report says when asked, Walsh admitted entering the store naked on a dare from his girlfriend.

Walsh told The Daily Item of Lynn "The bulk of the allegation is untrue" and disputed the officer's report. Walsh, a 40-year department veteran, said he is a defense attorney and would never counsel a client to answer such a question from the police.

He is on paid leave and is due back in court May 10.
