DESTREHAN – Another public nudity sighting in St. Charles led to the arrest of a Destrehan man last week, according to the St. Charles Sheriff’s Office.

John Fuoco, 35, of 26 Brandon Hall Drive, Apt. D, Destrehan was taken into custody July 19 after witnesses on Fuoco’s street saw him walking around the neighborhood naked as well as fondling himself, Sheriff Greg Champagne reported.

This is the second arrest since June for public obscenity in St. Charles after a Norco man was arrested June 22 after eyewitnesses saw him jogging near the 600 block of West Pine totally nude.

Fuoco was released Thursday from the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center on $1,030 bond.
