A man was arrested and charged with public lewdness for walking naked near a highway while waving an American flag.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department arrested Gerald Lynn Kelley, 52, the Fort Payne Times-Journal reported Tuesday.

Deputy Mike James said deputies were sent to Hammondville about 3 p.m. Sunday after receiving calls about two men walking nude along U.S. 11, just inside the town limits.

James said Kelley, who was allegedly drunk, was wearing only a cowboy hat and boots.

The other man, reportedly clad in the same attire and also carrying the American flag, could not be found. Police reports show that Kelley and the other man had been at a party that got out of hand.

Kelley posted a $1,500 bond and was released from DeKalb County Jail early Monday morning.
