MADISON, Wis. -

A naked man was arrested after he was spotted walking nonchalantly past groups of people watching a structure fire, according to Madison police.

Police said a fire on Langdon Street early Wednesday morning drew onlookers, including a naked man. The 21-year-old was taken to jail and cited for disorderly conduct.

The man told police he believed it was his constitutional right to not wear clothes and threatened to sue.

The man registered a 0.21 percent blood-alcohol level on a preliminary breath test.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
