Police: Camera Catches Prosecutor Naked

BUAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh to live in Hamilton, Ohio... from the Northwest Indiana Times:

A security camera caught a city prosecutor walking around naked in a government building after business hours, authorities said.

Scott Blauvelt, 35, was arrested Monday and charged with two counts of public indecency. He was released from the Butler County jail and is awaiting a hearing in Hamilton Municipal Court, where he usually works, sheriff's Maj. Anthony Dwyer said.

Well this answers my question of, "if you walk around naked in a goverment building and no one sees you... is it Public Indecency?"

A guard monitoring a security camera spotted a nude man investigators identified as Blauvelt in a building that houses county offices Thursday night, Dwyer said. The night before, security video had captured Blauvelt naked in another area of the building, where city offices are located, he said.

Dwyer said investigators don't know why Blauvelt, who was alone, wasn't wearing clothes. The indecency charge carries a sentence of up to a month in jail and $250 fine if convicted.

Mayor Don Ryan said he planned to meet with the city law director Tuesday to talk about Blauvelt's employment status.

Blauvelt also has served as assistant county prosecutor and a defense lawyer.

Blauvelt's lawyer, Michael Gmoser, did not immediately return a call from The Cincinnati Enquirer seeking comment.
