MADISON, Wis. (UPI) — Police in Wisconsin said a local man known as “Thong Cape Scooter Man” is not breaking any laws by riding his motorized scooter wearing only a thong and a cape.
Madison police said they were called by staff at John F. Kennedy Elementary School Thursday when the scantily clad “Thong Cape Scooter Man” was seen riding past the facility while students were present, the Wisconsin State Journal reported Monday.
Police spokesman Joel DeSpain said a sergeant visited the 56-year-old man’s home and spoke with him.
“He said he exercised poor judgment by going by the school at that time of day, it was unintentional and he just happened to be traveling through the area,” DeSpain said.
The man, whose name was not released by police, did not break any laws and was not arrested or cited, DeSpain said.
“The sergeant told the school staff Thong Cape Scooter Man was free to ride on,” DeSpain said.
