Man cited for going shirtless

EASTON, Md. (AP) - September 19, 2008

A young Maryland man is being ordered to pay a $25 fine and court costs for being shirtless in public.

Eighteen-year-old Sean Cephus was arrested in June for violating a local ordinance in the city of Easton. The law requires both men and women to wear shirts in public.

Police concede the law is rarely enforced.

Cephus is currently doing 18 months on an unrelated assault charge.
