Alaska State Troopers spent 90 minutes Saturday morning searching for a man celebrating his birthday in his birthday suit.
Joseph Vance Arabie
, who turned 21 on Saturday, has been charged with indecent exposure and resisting arrest.
A trooper K-9 unit was on patrol just after 4:30 a.m. when the trooper spotted a naked man walking with a clothed woman
on the bike path just off the Johansen Expressway.
When the trooper approached, the man took off running, while the woman stayed behind.
The woman did not answer many of the trooper’s questions, but she had Arabie’s driver’s license.
After a 90-minute search, the trooper was able to locate Arabie with the assistance of the K-9. Arabie was wanted on three warrants.
Trooper Sgt. Brian Wassmann said that information was not available about why Arabie was naked during the alleged incident.
“It’s certainly an unusual case,” he said.
