Forget the question of "shirtless or shirts on," how about "shortless or shorts on?"

Cincinnati police say they arrested a central Ohio man who was running naked in Sunday’s Flying Pig Marathon and Tased him when he wouldn't comply with their orders to stop.

Police say Henderson was told to exit the race and get in a police car but he refused, running around an officer and continuing to run in the race. Eventually, Henderson was instructed to get in a car or he would be Tased. Henderson kept on running and an officer Tased him.

Henderson was not a registered participant in the Flying Pig, according to a race roster. (side commentary: "Ummm...")

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Citizen Sunday night, Henderson acknowledged the incident occurred but said he doesn't believe he did
anything wrong.

"I've run in marathons all over the country, and I think I know the running culture pretty well and I know that anything goes on race day," he
said. "This is something that happens and is tolerated in the running culture, along with runners who sometimes (urinate) or defecate during a
race. Shouldn't that be considered indecent exposure, too, if what I did was indecent? In fact, running naked was encouraged in a marathon I ran in San Francisco, so I don't know why this was such a big deal." (side commentary: "Ummm...")

Henderson, who is recovering from recent knee surgery, said he hadn't planned on running naked.

He said he borrowed a pair of running shorts from his father, Stephen, but that after he started the marathon, they started slipping off.

"I looked but couldn't find a drawstring ... I kept fighting and pulling on them, and then the elastic gave way so I let them drop," said Brett. "I
just went with it because I wanted to finish the marathon."

Henderson said he tried to tie his tank top around his waist, but that didn't work out, either.

"It was too short to be a belt ... all the other runners were supportive and kept encouraging me to continue, so I was running naked," he said. "It
was cold and rainy, so I wasn't exactly proud of what I was showing."

Eventually, he said, a policeman started making a move toward him in the
middle of the pack, but Henderson said he accelerated and the other runners helped shield him.

"At one point, the policeman charged me and told me to stop running or he was going to Tase me, and I could sense his aggression and rage
and I thought the police were going to manhandle me," said Henderson. "The metal arrows of the Taser were shot into me and electrocuted me, and I went into convulsions on the ground. When I finally came to, the policemen were standing around laughing at me. They put me in the squad car and took me to jail, where I spent four hours."

So, does this kind of thing happen to anybody when running? No, not the tasing part, you know what I mean!
