    Now I need to see what a “Borat Styled Costume” looks like.

  2. JohnnyB says:

    Great detective work guys. Wasn’t sure you would get to the bottom of this given the original picture only showed a man wearing a Borat style costume.

  3. hanky panky says:

    this was such a waste of police time and money – there is more flesh on show at the carnival, from men and women! No-one even complained!

    • Toodle-oo says:

      In this day and age , especially in the “Bermuda context” why this even became an issue ought to be obvious , eh ?

    • You expect that at Carnival, like you expect that at the beach.
      But a guy exposing his @$$ with a bunch of other guys?
      Definately different Cultural practices.

    • MB says:

      You have to wonder who is in charge of police lately like we don’t have enough other actual crime to deal with and solve and here they are chasing a guy with more clothes than the men and women wear at carnival or dog house. Thanks for wasting my tax payer dollars on frivolous pursuit! Do we get a refund? SMH
      PS There was a scantily clad woman in a thong bikini on Horseshoe this weekend, please get to the bottom

    Does the fact that there was a costume party justify his dress??? Were other patrons ware that it was a costume party??

    • bluenose says:

      People wear less at Carnival. There is no issue here. Just a waste of time and resources.

    • JohnnyB says:

      No, the fact his private parts were not exposed justified the dress. May be offensive to you but he was not breaking the law.

    • trufth says:

      Just STOP your noise.
      Did Carnival costumes offend you?
      Just stop it.

    • Mrs. Brady says:

      Its not like he dry humped a policeman on his bike. It wan’t the carnival. It was no worse than a skimpy bikini that you can see any day. But people like to make something of it. Anything for a vote.

  5. ImJustSayin says:

    Well I’ll be, you’re saying he wasn’t naked,who would have guessed it!!

  6. question says:

    I hope the same attention to decency and decorum is paid when Carnival weekend comes around.

  7. somuchless says:

    This is a ‘Well I Never’ story hahaha

  8. puzzled says:

    Vote for me please shut up.
    You ever seen a naked person?
    What a waste of my breath.

  9. Davie Kerr says:

    Honestly, what a bloody hoo-hah over a triviality. Some people do love to make mountains out of molehills…

  10. Oh,I see now says:

    To all that feel It’s a non issue god forbid he’s walking past the house with kids in the yard.
