An impromptu striptease by an overweight middle-aged man led to children screaming and charges of public disorder when the naked man assaulted two policewomen. (Video NSFW.)
The incident occurred on Saturday during the annual Fasching carnival parade in the town of Hörbranz in the west Austrian province of Vorarlberg.
A man appeared to have enjoyed too much of the carnival spirit when he decided to disrobe in the middle of a snow-covered road.
After dancing around in the snow, the man was confronted by two police officers, who tried to persuade him to get dressed.
Despite their best efforts, the man showed no sign of wanting to stop his celebrations, so the officers struggled to push him into the police car - an operation which he resisted strongly.
Eventually, the two police women managed to corral the capricious carnival goer, who now faces charges of public disorder.
