Man, 59, Arrested for Wearing Clear Plastic Wrap Swim Shorts to the Beach: Cops

A New Jersey man was arrested last week after cops say he sunned himself on a beach in nothing but homemade bikini shorts fashioned out of plastic wrap.

Beach Haven police say Stephen Wojciehowski, 59, spent two days on Long Beach Island wearing the revealing swimwear that "clearly exposed" his genitals to beachgoers, according to a police statement.

Wojciehowski was arrested following an investigation based on information provided by several eyewitnesses.

"The facts developed as a result of the investigation led to arrest and subsequent charge of Lewdness," according to the police statement.

He was released pending a future court appearance.

Police did not provide a possible explanation for Wojciehowski's strange choice of outfit, but several commenters on the Beach Haven Police Department Facebook page had a theory or two.

The consensus? The suspect just wanted to avoid any tan lines.
