Naked man arrested near AL elementary school

ARAB, AL (WAFF) - An Arab man is arrested after he is discovered naked near a local elementary school.

40 year old Clayton Wayne Buie is charged with indecent exposure after the incident at Arab Elementary earlier this week.

Police say if there's a good side to this it happened during the summer.

Arab police say they got a call Monday morning around 5 a.m. of a man found next to Arab Elementary who was on the sidewalk naked.

People at the school say it was the custodian who found him.

Arab police responded and that's when they say they found Buie naked on the sidewalk.

They believe he may have been intoxicated when he went to sleep at the school but was not when they arrived.

Police say Buie told them he had been sleeping in the woods but after disturbing an ant bed he took off his clothes and began walking. But why he chose the school is unknown.

"He just indicated that he was walking, got tired, and that's where he stopped. We're just very grateful that it's school break, summer break, and kids aren't in session because this could have been a terrible, terrible incident if children were loading and unloading on the buses there at school," said Arab Assistant Police Chief Shane Washburn.

Buie has since been released on bond.
