MADISON, Wis. – A man who wears thong underwear and a cape while riding his scooter through Wisconsin’s capital city may be a strange sight. But police say he isn’t breaking any laws.

Earlier this month, staff at John F. Kennedy Elementary School in Madison called authorities after the man rode by in his unmentionables while students were walking to a bus.

Police spokesman Joel DeSpain told the Wisconsin State Journal that a sergeant had a chat with the person police call Thong Cape Scooter Man. He admitted he used poor judgment in going past the school but said he did it unintentionally. The city attorney told police the man broke no laws.
