For only the third time in five years, Easton police have ticketed someone for going topless in public. Sean Cephus, 18, was cited June 4 when police say he was spotted without a shirt on South Street near Hanson Street. He was also cited for failing to obey a lawful order to stop for police.
A town ordinance adopted in 1974 forbids anyone from going topless in public buildings or on public streets and sidewalks. Possible penalties are a fine of up to $100 and up to 10 days in jail.
Easton Police Lt. Gregory Wright said people without shirts are considered a public nuisance. He said three citations have been issued since 2003.

I wonder if he had been wearing the "Manzier" would he have been in trouble?

I wonder if that would apply to a baby in diapers ?
*shrug* This doesn't bother me that much. Either the law should let anybody (man or woman) go topless or nobody...
I would not be surprised to find out this was some sort of anti-criminal legislation, similar to the recent ordinances against sagging pants some places have passed. There is certainly a certain stereotype associated with guys who go shirtless in public.

If he wore a shirt he could get away with his speedos.
You just have to watch a few episodes of COPS to understand why they would do this.

So...ONLY a shirt and he's good to go?

I'm guessing they don't have a public pool.
