Two guys in New Zealand had better luck. Senior Constable Cather Duder pulled over a pair of men a couple of weeks ago around 10 p.m. in the seaside resort town of Whangamata after seeing the two riding bikes in the buff
. Though public nudity is a chargeable offensive in New Zealand, Duder decided to cut them some slack and sent them on their way with an admonishment to wear a helmet. "It was dark and there was no one else around. They were jovial young men who had not intended to cause offense," she said.
