ST. GEORGE – Police responded Friday afternoon to reports of an allegedly naked man in front of a business on 500 East in St. George.
A naked individual was seen in front of Desert Rose Floral, 70 North 500 East, urinating in front of a tree, St. George Police Sgt. Sam Despain said.
Officers responded to the scene and encountered the unclothed man, identified as 50-year-old Bruce Stucki, and took him into custody.
“We believe alcohol was a factor in this incident,” Despain said.
Stucki faces potential charges of lewdness and public intoxication in relation to the incident.
As of 5:55 p.m., charges had not yet been filed against Stucki, according to bookings information from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
