Man Busted for Allegedly Mowing Lawn in Loincloth Near Kids

Police said potty-mouthed lawnmower man wouldn't stop clipping his grass


A Minnesota man was charged with disorderly conduct after allegedly mowing his lawn while clad in nothing but a loincloth.

Matthew Swanson, 43, drew the eyes of the law after a neighbor said the Fergus Falls resident had partially exposed himself while clipping his grass Wednesday afternoon near a day care where children were present, WDAY-TV reported. He was reportedly yelling obscenities to boot

Police said they arrested the modern-day Tarzan after he responded with more foul-mouthed curses to their request that he stop the nearly naked mowing, WDAY-TV reported.

Swanson had reportedly been cited earlier Wednesday for harassing police by phone.
