    Daily Journal: Vineland teacher fired for streaking (Dec 12 2012)

    At 8:33 p.m. March 21, Berlin police Sgt. Gary Sheehan was dispatched to Greenway Village Apartments for reports of a naked man running through the parking lot, the arbitrator’s decision noted. The witness called police because children were in the area and he was concerned for their safety, according to police testimony contained in the tenure ruling. The witness also told Sheehan this wasn’t the first time he’d seen the nude man sprinting through the lot. Using the witness’ description of the suspect and partial license plate number for his Ford Escort, Sheehan located the car in an adult bookstore parking lot on Route 73.

    The officer found a suspect matching the description who identified himself at Bringhurst. At first, Bringhurst denied being at Greenway Village Apartments, but then admitted to the officer that he did run naked through the parking lot. He was placed under arrest.
