Sean C. Flaherty believes the color red is out to get us.
So when he saw a bunch of red tail lights in a parking lot in Iowa City, Iowa, early Wednesday morning, he felt compelled to break them with a bottle.
Flaherty, 42, was naked at the time, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported.
Arresting officers said that, besides being naked, Flaherty had bloodshot, watery eyes and smelled strongly of alcohol. A breathalyzer test showed he had a blood alcohol level of .083 percent.
During his clothing-optional interrogation, he told cops that he broke the tail lights because "red means danger to the republic," KCRG-TV reported.
The total damage to the cars was estimated at $600.
Flaherty was charged with third-degree criminal mischief and a serious misdemeanor count for an alcohol violation, according to Associated Press.
Flaherty is listed as a member of a member of the Johnson County Democrat's central committee.
