Asbury Park Man Arrested for Wearing a 'Borat' Style Mankini on the Boardwalk
On Saturday in Asbury Park, New Jersey, a man celebrating the repeal of a boardwalk bathing suit ban has been arrested for lewdness after he removed his shorts to reveal a Borat
Steve Ettinger, 26, was arrested at Asbury Park's boardwalk at around 1:40pm during a bathing suit party to mark the city's decision to scrap a law banning swim suits from the boardwalk.
A man with a microphone urged a topless Ettinger to take off his shorts and show the small crowd the previously forbidden attire, chanting "Borat" to egg him on.
Ettinger complied, unbuttoning his shorts, partially exposing his genitals as he bent down to drop his shorts.
"You just exposed yourself. I saw you," an officer said to Ettinger as he arrested him.
Ettinger was cuffed and led away as the small group of activists followed closely behind taunting the police and protesting their friend's innocence.
Ettinger has received a summons to appear in court for indecent exposure.
I truly feel that everyone is entitled to wear whatever the hell they want because this is a free country and all, but at least try to keep your privates private. No one's trying to see that.
