Police in Longwood, Florida, responded on the evening of May 12 to reports of a naked man playing basketball in a park. When the officers arrived, the New York Post reports, they found 29-year-old Jordan Glen Anderson as described: Honing his sports prowess and not wearing a stitch, according to the police report.

"Based on observing Jordon at Candy Land Park, which is a public area, and without clothing, exposing his sexual organs, I found probable cause to charge Jordon with indecent exposure," the arrest report recounts, according to the New York Post article.

The report said that when officers asked the freestyling suspect what he was doing, he "stated he was working on his basketball skills and he feels playing naked enhances his skill level," an account posted by Newsweek reported.

Anderson's bail was set at $500 and he is due in court on June 11, media reports said.
