Police arrest naked man riding unicycle

Joseph Farley charged with indecent exposure

KEMAH, Texas - Police in Kemah, Texas arrested a man who was riding a unicycle nude over the Kemah Bridge.

According to investigators, calls started coming in to the police station about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday.  When an officer spotted the man on the bridge, he was riding his unicycle without clothing.  

Police said Joseph Farley took off his clothes at the foot of the bridge.  Officers say they have seen Farley, 49, on the bridge for several weeks riding his unicycle clothed.

"He said that he liked the way that it felt. Really don't know what he meant by that, but that's what he said," said Kemah Police Chief Greg Rikard. "The officer kept his distance as best he could. Obviously he wasn't armed, that we could tell. We did what we could do. Turned him around and moved him off to the side of the vehicle to get him out of the view of the public."

Farley was charged with indecent exposure. 

Police said he was not intoxicated or impaired. 

Farley told police he is a former teacher. 

His bond was set at $1,500.
