The man was not charged with a crime, but police warn that running in the buff could be considered indecent exposure.
Microsoft’s Redmond campus got a late-night visit from a nude jogger Friday.
Officers on the south side of the tech giant’s campus, near 15320 N.E. 40th St., stopped the man about 3:30 a.m. after “seeing nude buttocks illuminated by a streetlight,” according to a city news release.
The man was wearing nothing but black Skechers sneakers, police said.
After being placed in the back of a patrol car, the man told police he was “trying to build up his immune system to fight the cold weather.”
