Nude New Zealander Arrested After Responding to Fake Sexy Text Message

N.Z. Texter Responds to Sexy Invite Naked, Gets ArrestedNew Zealand is a long, long distance away from Switched H.Q., but this story sure sounds like something that could have happened right here in the good ol' U.S. of A. In the city of Wellington, N.Z., a man received a text message offering him an early Christmas present that would be, erm, "presented" by two very friendly ladies. They gave him their address, told him to hurry up, and added that if he really wanted to save time, he should just show up naked.

You can probably see where this is heading.

The man dutifully arrived, stripped naked, threw his clothes through an open window, and then discovered that the place was indeed not home to two lusty girls, but was instead occupied by a very shocked kiwi, who promptly called the police. The naked man was caught and arrested for being unlawfully on someone else's property. There is justice in N.Z., though, as the girl who sent the misleading text message was also charged with the crime of "misusing a phone." Both went un-prosecuted, however, in the end.

So, if you want to get away with breaking into someone's house without any clothes on, you should probably go to New Zealand to do it.
