Fifteen Cops Arrest Central Park Skinny Dipper


It’s springtime, and that means rediscovering Central Park. But we bet whatever you’re planning on doing there won’t be as exciting as Alionme Dieng’s Saturday, during which the New York Post reports he beat up a police van with a tree branch, then jumped in the Harlem Meer and swam out to an island, “where he spent 90 minutes singing and shouting before cops — 15 of them — nabbed him.” He stripped to his underwear while there, dove back into the water, and emerged once more in just his birthday suit. That’s what we call true spring fever.
