Four arrested for nudity ban violation in San Francisco

| No Comments

San Francisco police arrested four citizens on Friday who were protesting the city's public nudity ban by stripping down, news sources reported.

The three men and one woman were taken into custody entirely naked after they disrobed on the steps of San Francisco City Hall along with other protesters "in various states of undress," the Huffington Post said.

The protesters argued that the recent ban goes against their rights to freedom of expression, and police gave the four protesters a 15-minute warning before giving them a citation for breaking the ban, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The ordinance prohibits most public nudity with the exception of certain permitted public events and went into effect on Friday, the day of the protest, according to the Huffington Post.
