A man who stripped naked before working out at a New Hampshire gym told police officers that he thought he was in a “Judgement Free Zone,” before being arrested.
NECN reports 34-year-old Eric Stagno, of Haverhill, Massachusetts, was charged with indecent exposure, lewdness and disorderly conduct on Sunday for taking off his clothes and exercising at a Plaistow Planet Fitness.
“This place isn’t a ‘Judgement Free Zone,'” Stagno told yc.news. “If it was a so-called ‘Judgement Free Zone’ you wouldn’t be calling me asking me about this arrest! Never again will I go there.”
Police say he walked back and forth and started doing poses on a yoga mat. He allegedly referenced Planet Fitness’ slogan that it is a “Judgement Free Zone.”
Stagno is free on bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on Sept. 21 in Plaistow District Court.
