OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City man was cited after he went to extreme measures to cool down from the summertime heat.

On July 21, officers were called to a home in the 14000 block of N. Everest Ave. after someone spotted a naked man standing outside a foreclosed home.

When police arrived at the home, they met 29-year-old Zachary Jaco in boxer shorts.

"He had been outside without any clothes on whatsoever, indicated it was very hot," said MSgt. Gary Knight with Oklahoma City Police.

According to the arrest affidavit, witnesses told authorities they spotted Jaco standing naked in the front yard.

When officers asked Jaco why he was outside naked in the front yard, the report claims Jaco said "It was cooler outside than it is inside the house."

Jaco was cited for public indecency.

Many neighbors learned of the alleged naked stroll on Monday.

"He might've done that, exposed himself to my wife, one of the neighbor's kids," said Jacob Knowles, who lives down the street. "Then it'd be a whole different story from my point of view."

"I mean, you know, it’s probably not the most effective way to cool down," said Shelby Sieg. "It’s not an awesome look for the neighborhood, but what are you gonna do?"
