SALISBURY, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man is facing lewd charges after lifeguards say he refused to stop shaving himself while nude on a beach.
The Eagle Tribune reports that Christopher Axford was arrested Monday on a beach in Salisbury. According to a police report, the 45-year-old was shaving his armpits while his shorts were pulled down to his shins when police arrived to the scene.
Axford, who police said is homeless, was charged with lewd, wanton and lascivious conduct, public drinking and disorderly conduct and release on personal recognizance. Less than 12 hours after his release, Axford was arrested again on charges he stole a tip jar from a pizzeria.
He is being held without bail pending a pretrial hearing scheduled for Aug. 31. It was unclear if he had an attorney.
