MIDDLETOWN, R.I. (AP) - A firefighter walked naked into a Rhode Island convenience store on a dare, police said. He has been placed on leave.
Police responded to a 7-Eleven in Middletown the afternoon of April 3 for a report of a naked customer. The owner said the man with a "smile on his face" purchased a soda and left in a car.
The car, with two fully clothed occupants, was pulled over. The 29-year-old passenger said she "dared" her boyfriend to go into the store nude because he said it was legal in Rhode Island.
Police charged John Walsh, 60, of Lynnfield, Massachusetts, with disorderly conduct. His phone rang busy on Thursday.
Lynnfield Fire Chief Glenn Davis said Walsh has been placed on paid administrative leave. He has been with the department for 40 years.
