KINGSPORT, Tenn., March 30 (UPI) -- Police in Kingston, Tenn., said a man charged with running naked through a grocery story told officers he did it because he was bored.

A police report said Daniel Lee, 22, of Church Hill, admitted to walking into the IGA grocery store Friday about 9 p.m. "wearing only a rubber mask," The Kingsport Times-News reported Tuesday.

Lee fled the store but employees were able to detain his alleged accomplice, Katelyn Trent, 18, who said she was his girlfriend.

The suspect was tracked to a nearby Hardee's, where employees said he came inside dressed in only an orange hoodie and started begging for clothes before hiding in a bathroom.

"Daniel advised me that he did run through the IGA nude because he was bored and didn't have anything to do," an officer wrote in the report.

Lee was charged with indecent exposure and booked into the Kingsport jail. No charges had been filed against Trent.
