— A man walking around naked was arrested after 30 people called 911 Tuesday morning, police said.

Carlton Bell, 21, was arrested on an indecent exposure complaint and a municipal warrant.

Midwest City police received about 30 calls to 911 about 7:30 a.m. to report a naked man was walking down SE 15 near Douglas Boulevard and Soldier Creek Elementary School, Police Chief Brandon Clabes said.

Officers found Bell walking eastbound on SE 15, wearing only a beanie cap. Bell told police he thought it would be a “good idea” to take his clothes off, Clabes said.

Bell was taken to the Midwest City jail, and bail was set at $845, Clabes said.
