Naked man covered in nacho cheese arrested

Naked man covered in nacho cheese arrested

A man has been arrested in Tennessee after police caught him running naked from the scene of a robbery covered in nacho cheese.
Michael P. Monn's jeep was spotted by a routine police patrol in a car park in Maryville in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Minutes after officers found clothes and a bottle of alcohol in the vehicle, Monn ran towards the jeep carrying a box of snacks and nacho cheese.
The 23-year-old was charged with burglary, theft, vandalism, public intoxication and indecent exposure, says the Daily Times.
An officer said: "The male had nacho cheese in his hair, on his face and on his shoulders. The nude male had a strong odour of alcohol and was semi-incoherent.''

Miami's parking meter fairy

A Miami man has donned a wig, tutu and fake wings to become the city's parking meter fairy.
Xavier Cortes rollerskates around the trendy Coconut Grove area putting change into meters about to run out.
He wears a pink curly wig, a lavender tutu and diaphanous angel wings, reports the Sun-Sentinel.
Mr Cortes is employed by local retailers and restaurateurs who feared visitors were being discouraged by parking tickets.
Cynthia Bettner, publisher of Best Tourist Publications Inc, advertised in the Miami New Times for a "colourful one-of-a-kind extrovert who looks good in tulle".
She said: "Xavier was perfect. He's an artist, someone who likes to be dressed in this bizarre outfit to help educate people about the parking tickets."
Mr Cortes, an artist with a theatre background whose works have been featured in galleries and on music album covers, said he loved his new job.
"I've done Che Guevara, who is a communist, so this is just another performance," he said. "I'm out skating, and I'm getting paid for doing somebody a favour."
