Imagine this situation. It's a nice summer day, so you're spending some time outside. More specifically, in the nice community of Elmhurst.

You're minding your own business and having a pleasant time when something outrageous happens.

A man was wandering around the area wearing only his underwear. You can't unsee something like that. A dude in just his tighty whities is not a pleasant sight.

Of course, the police were called and he was immediately arrested.
