For the third time in five years, Easton, Pennsylvania police have ticketed someone for going topless in public. 18-year old Sean Cephus was cited June 4 when police say he was spotted in town without a shirt. He was also cited for failing to obey a lawful order to stop for police, on, in other words, he ran.
A 1974 town ordinance forbids anyone from going topless in public buildings or on public streets and sidewalks with penalties of fines up to $100 and up to 10 days in jail.
Easton Police Lt. Gregory Wright said it is considered a public nuisance., and that three citations have been issued since 2003.
