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.
