Savannah River skinny dippers arrested

Posted By on Sat, Mar 14, 2015 at 8:38 PM

Two men who "shed their clothing and dived into the Savannah River Friday night were the only arrests recorded in the first night of the 2015 St. Patrick’s Day Festival," said a police spokesman.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police officers assigned to the River Street Command Center "charged the two men from Pennsylvania in their early 40s with swimming in prohibited waters about 7:15 p.m."

The city ordinance violation is a misdemeanor.

They had "ignored directions to stop from nearby SCMPD Marine Patrol officers who saw them disrobing. The Marine Patrol officers helped them from the waters where they were struggling with an unexpected current and the effects of previous partying."
