What a complete ass! If the potential fiance had any brains, she's run a mile in the other direction.

Michigan man runs naked in marriage proposal gone wrong; shot at by neighbour

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A marriage-minded man ran naked through his neighbourhood, trying to show his hesitant girlfriend that taking risks is important.

He got more than he bargained for when he ended up being chased and shot at.

The couple were discussing marriage early Wednesday when the woman said she was not sure if she was ready, according to Ann Arbor police reports.

After running naked across the street, the man ducked into some bushes when he spotted a couple walking.

A 28-year-old man spotted the bushes rustling and bare feet underneath, and drew his .40-calibre handgun, and ordered the naked man to come out, according to police.

The naked suitor ran away, but the armed man gave chase and eventually fired a shot, police said. The naked man fell to the ground, suffering minor injuries.

Police arrested the gunman on charges of aggravated assault and carrying a concealed weapon. The naked man was not arrested.

The naked man was charged, _ with carrying an exposed weapon.

Just confirms what I thought about America; isn't anyone else sympathetic to the guy?

I am very, very surprised that this happened in Ann Arbor. Not the running around naked part -- that's not uncommon around there -- but the part about the guy carrying around a gun and shooting naked guys running around. Ann Arbor is a pretty liberal, tolerant city built around a pretty liberal, tolerant university. Glad to see that the shooter was arrested and the naked guy suffered only minor injuries and was not charged.

Yep, if it had happened in the UK, bystanders would have just laughed and gone on their way.
It is totally alien to me that someone a) actually carries a gun round with them, and b) would actually use it, especially when their life was not in danger.

Gawd, we even had a naked rambler, who made his way from Land's End to John O'Groats last year (500 miles ish?).

Of course, he was arrested several times, but soon released.

Maybe the guy's todger intimidated the gunman?

This is why a concealed carry law is a good idea.

This wouldn't happen in Texas.

We don't miss....

And call TXDOT to clean up. Or just use the composter.
