Naked came the mail carrier

A Wisconsin postal carrier says he simply wanted to cheer up a woman on his rounds who seemed "stressed out" when he decided to deliver mail in the buff. But upon further review, the worker told police that delivering mail while completely naked probably wasn't a good idea.

A police report says the 52-year-old man told the 21-year-old woman he would deliver the mail in the nude to her office in Whitefish Bay to make her laugh.

He said the woman then made a comment that he took as a dare, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

However, the woman denies daring or encouraging him in any way, according to the Journal Sentinel. In fact, she told police she did not hear him say he planned to deliver the mail au naturel, though she also said she didn’t think he intended to harm her.

In any case, the police report says that on Dec. 4 the carrier brought the mail wearing only a smile.

He was arrested for lewd and lascivious behavior five days later. The Journal Sentinel says the man admitted that it was a stupid thing to do.
