Naked runner streaks by police on frozen N.S. lake

A man caught running naked on a frozen lake in Nova Scotia was warned about over-exposure by a surprised police officer who discovered him Monday.

The RCMP officer saw a parked car near Bayside and went to investigate.

The officer then saw the 44-year-old man running around the ice.

The naked man wasn't alone. Police say a 28-year-old woman was taking pictures of the incident. The pair apologized and told the officer they were artists working on a project.

They weren't ticketed, but the man was warned about the dangers of being on thin ice. That, and running nude in public.
