FAIRBANKS, Alaska — A Fairbanks man is facing an indecent exposure charge on suspicion that he celebrated his 21st birthday in only his birthday suit.
Alaska State Troopers say Joseph Vance Arabie also faces a resisting arrest count after the early Saturday morning incident.
A trooper was on patrol at about 4:30 a.m. when he spotted a naked man walking with a clothed woman on a bike path just off the Johansen Expressway. When the trooper approached the two, the man took off running.
Troopers say the woman didn't answer many of their questions but did have the suspect's driver's license.
About 90 minutes later, the trooper — assisted by a police dog — found the suspect.
Troopers say the suspect was not able to give a good reason for being nude. The woman was not charged.
