LE SUEUR — Serious bag tossers have long lists of techniques that can be used to perfect a throw that will land a sack of beans in a hole more times than not.
The buff technique, which made its Adams Street debut on a recent warm Friday evening, was a little too much for neighbors. A call to police sent at least one leafless lobber dashing inside.
Acting on a report of people drinking and running naked outside in the 1100 block of Adams Street, two Mankato police officers arrived at about 11:15 p.m. June 29.
“Upon arrival I observed a man in the backyard playing a yard game commonly known as ‘bean bags’ or ‘corn hole’ completely naked with his genitals in full view of passing traffic,” officer David Blackstock reported. “As I was driving by, the man saw me and ran inside the home.”
As officer Rick Wandersheid was arriving to assist, Blackstock knocked on the front door of the house. There was no answer, but Blackstock reported he looked through the windows of an overhead garage door and saw the man inside buttoning up a pair of shorts.
He yelled at the 28-year-old suspect and told him to open the door, but the man refused to answer. The man eventually went into the house and turned out the lights, Blackstock reported.
The officers checked the yard to see if anyone else was around and found a pile of clothing where the naked bagger had been standing. Saying the clothing was now evidence, Blackstock confiscated a pair of shorts with a belt, a tank top shirt, a pair of green Hanes boxers, a Droid cellphone, about $16 in cash and a black wallet with the suspect’s driver’s license inside.
The house where the officers were at was listed as the address of the suspect and two vehicles parked outside were registered to him, Blackstock reported. A citation for indecent exposure, a misdemeanor, was mailed to the man last week.
