Man arrested in Bridgeport for public nude photo shoot

BRIDGEPORT - Police say they arrested a man for taking part in a nude photo shoot in the middle of a busy Bridgeport neighborhood yesterday afternoon.

Investigators say 36-year-old model Charles Kearse was participating in a photo shoot on the roof of a garage when he decided to strip off his clothing.

The police report says a resident in a nearby apartment building happened to look out a window and called 911.

Photographer Israel Guibbory says he never planned for Kearse to bare all or for this kind of exposure. Guibbory also issued a statement apologizing to anyone offended by the incident.

Kearse was arrested and police charged him with breach of peace.  He is expected to go before a judge on June 3.
