Boulder police say they have issued six citations under the city's new public nudity law since it took effect this spring.
The Boulder Daily Camera reports that the latest citation happened early Saturday when a 27-year-old man was accused of showing his genitals to a crowd. A police commander reported that it appeared the man had been drinking and that he had "a big smile on this face" as he walked in circles.
Boulder's nudity law makes it a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail for anyone older than 10 to show their genitals in public or in private property where they may be seen. Without the new law, police say nude offenders faced stricter punishment, including having to register as a sex offender.
