The Naked Rambler Stephen Gough has been arrested three days after he was released from prison.
Gough, a former Royal Marine who hikes across the country naked, was arrested in Townhill, Dunfermline, by policemen from Fife Constabulary.
He was released from Perth Prison on Tuesday, having spent the past six years in the Scottish jail.
A spokesman for Fife Constabulary said he was arrested following complaints from members of the public and has been charged with a supposed breach of the peace.
The Naked Rambler's supporters on Facebook have made an official complaint to the Fife Constabulary
Re Arrest of Mr Stephen Gough on the afternoon of 20th July 2012 whilst in the course of peacefully eating his lunch unattired
I refer to the ruling on Breach of the Peace, in 2001 in the High Court of Justiciary, where Lord Coulsfield held that breach of the peace required conduct severe enough to cause alarm to ordinary people and threaten serious disturbance to
the community and that mere annoyance or irritation were insufficient .
Misapplication of the legislation governed by this ruling would in itself constitute Breach of the Peace by any individual(s) conducting such misapplication. Fife Constabulary is hereby on notice to provide indisputable evidence, including a
physical witness, of serious disturbance to the community .
In this regard, this message is being copied to Professional Standards and constitutes a formal complaint.
Update: Jailed for at least a month
24th July 2012. See article
Stephen Gough, the man known as the naked rambler, has denied charges concerning nudity 'close' to a play park near Dunfermline.
Prosecutors said he refused to put on clothing or move away and supposedly committed a breach of the peace on 20 July.
Gough chose to represent himself and was naked during the court appearance.
He was jailed until 23 August. Gough did not ask for bail.
