The headline also seems a bit ambiguous about the crime-- is it illegal to pound on cars, or illegal to be naked? Or is it only illegal to be naked while pounding on cars?

An experienced editor would've led with "Naked man accused of car pounding"...

Or "Car pounding man accused of being naked" ?

Wow - nakedness, DUI and assault! All were crimes!

Now how did I read that Neanderthals to Close Prisons: Not Enough Criminals ?

I had to click on the article to realize my error.

And, no, I am not smoking anything!

We should close this thread properly. (like a New Orleans Wake)
