A 45-year-old man was arrested by Rockland police after walking naked on Sandy Beach the evening of May 7.

Roy A. Allen of Rockland was charged with indecent conduct following a call alerting police that a man was walking naked along the beach, said Rockland Deputy Chief Wally Tower.

When police arrived shortly after 5 p.m., three minor females flagged them down and pointed in the direction of Allen, who had since put on boxer shorts.

The teenagers told Officer Andrew Cook the man had been running around naked and exposing himself to them, as well as rolling around and acting strangely, according to an affidavit filed by police.

When Cook approached Allen he was sitting with a woman. Allen told police he was not supposed to have contact with the woman or drink alcohol as part of his probation, according to court papers.

Allen told police he was naked, but did not do anything inappropriate.

He was also visibly intoxicated, said police.

According to the affidavit, the bail conditions Allen said he was under were not confirmed.

At the jail, Allen became increasingly hostile toward corrections officers and at one point, had to be taken to the ground by staff, said court papers.

Sgt. Tony Camporiale assisted Cook at the scene.

Allen is held on $300 cash bail and is expected to appear in court May 8.
