Streakers cited in 'Naked Pumpkin Run'

BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 2 (UPI) -- Police say the ticket tally from this year's "Naked Pumpkin Run" through Boulder, Colo., reached an even dozen.

The (Boulder) Daily Camera said Sunday that police are actually turning up the pressure on the annual Halloween event in which streakers sprint down Pearl Street wearing nothing but Jack-o-Lanterns on their heads.

The newspaper said the participants were rarely cited in the event's 10-year history, but Police Chief Mark Beckner said its growing popularity was raising concerns.

"We wanted to do something before (the event) got out of hand," he said. "This was a good opportunity to enforce the law."

The chief told KMGH-TV in nearby Denver that the fact Halloween fell on a Friday this year was cause for concern.

Some residents told the Daily Camera they felt police resources would have been better spent on more-serious criminal activity.
