Naked Man Moons Deputy At Florida Riverbank

Marion County Sheriff's Office

A Florida deputy got to see a full moon two days before everyone else after a naked man bent over and exposed his buttocks to the officer on Sunday afternoon.

The butt-foon struck as the Marion County Sheriff's deputy responded to complaints about a naked man standing on a riverbank near the Ocala Boat Basin.

Witnesses said a man identified as Craig Bierema, 48, was seen exposing himself while pointing at their boats, reports.

The deputy said he saw Bierema "fully nude, standing on a log, screaming and waving his arms in the air," according to a police report obtained by

When a witness told Bierema that a police officer was behind him, the suspect allegedly bent over and mooned the deputy.

He turned around and realized that there was, indeed, a cop downwind.

The suspect later told police he didn't believe the person who warned him about the deputy, according to a spokesperson for the Marion County Sheriff's Department.

Bierema also admitted that he had consumed five beers while at the river, police say.

He was arrested and charged with exposure of sexual organs and later released on $1,000 bail, according to the Ocala Post.

The real moon, which won't be full until June 2, had no comment.
