Kansas deputies confront nude Oregon man taking pictures

NEWTON, Kan. — Authorities say an Oregon man was urged to head home after he was spotted taking pictures of a central Kansas wheat field wearing nothing “but a hat and a smile.”

The Harvey County sheriff’s office says the man was first spotted Wednesday afternoon. Sheriff T. Walton says the man was wearing boxers when he was located about four hours later.

Walton said in a Facebook post that the undersheriff told the man and his friend that “Kansas is not as liberal as Oregon and suggested they continue their travels back to their home state.”

Walton says it’s technically not illegal to be publicly naked in the county, provided you are not trying to arouse yourself or others. Walton added, “You know folks, you just can’t make this stuff up!”
