Go to the library, or talk to an attorney. Find out what is prohibited
and what is not in your area. You may be surprised! Laws in many areas
do not appear to prohibit simple nudity in public, and court decisions
have upheld this opinion in some cases. In most areas, law enforcement
officials know when they can and cannot arrest you, but in some areas
the officials are ignorant. An informed citizen is the mortal enemy of
improper law enforcement, so know your rights.
A composite of state lasw regarding nudity can be found atthe web site
