The naked man, 1977

Posted on July 28, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

A stitchless Michael Hardrick tried to explain to Lexington attorney Pat Prosser why he was walking around downtown naked, reading from a Bible, on July 28, 1977. Hardrick, 26, of Cincinnati, told Prosser that he had been directed by the Lord to give away all his earthly possessions. Lexington police arrived and arrested him for indecent exposure at Market and Third streets. Photo by Ron Garrison | Staff
