I Love DC

Last night was our Holiday Party/Annual Meeting Take 2/Regional Happy Hour - all rolled into one event. Overall, I think it went pretty well. It was crazy, tons of people, I didn't get to talk to many of my friends, but did get to talk to a lot of people.

So, when I read this story - it just made me laugh. Thanks DCist!

Secret Service Apprehend Naked Jogger Near Ellipse

There was a brief suspicious package investigation around 15th and E streets NW on Wednesday evening, in the area of the Ellipse. As so often happens, the package, which turned out to be a plastic bag with clothes in it, was cleared so quickly we didn't even have a chance to report on it before the incident was already over. But as it turns out, there was more than package on display last night. The Post reports that the man who owned the bag of clothes had discarded it because he decided to go for a naked jog on E Street.
"He wasn't yelling or protesting. Just going for a jog," Wiley said.

Secret Service and D.C. police officers chased the man after he refused to stop.

"He was apprehended, naked though he was," Wiley said.Considering how cold it was last night, we figure this guy either lost a bet or is pretty seriously out of his mind. Did anyone actually, uh, see this particular package for themselves?
