COLUMBUS — A 59-year-old Corry man was arrested Monday afternoon after he stripped down when police responded to a call from a concerned citizen. 

Pennsylvania State Police at Corry said a public drunkenness incident occurred as a citizen observed the man, whose name was not released, walking down train tracks parallel to Route 6 while waving his arms and a white T-shirt in the air erratically near 45780 Route 6 in Columbus Township around 4:51 p.m.

When troopers arrived, the man began shouting unintelligibly with his hands behind his back as he was walking away from members, according to police.

The man then walked into a nearby lumber yard as troopers continued to try to de-esclate the situation.

Police said at this point the man removed his shorts and shoes, leaving him naked.

The man resisted arrested when troopers tried to take him into custody, however, police were able to get him into custody after a brief struggle.

The man refused to put his clothes on and was transported to the Corry barracks, according to police.

The man was charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and public drunkenness through District Judge Todd Woodin's office in Youngsville.
