MANCHESTER, NH – A naked man, allegedly high on spice, was arrested at 11:40 a.m. on July 14, 2017. Officers responded to the area of Kalivas Park for reports of a naked man sitting on the wall adjacent to the sidewalk.

Officer Raymond Lamy approached the area and noticed the naked man walking across Pine Street toward Mike’s Pub and Grub. Officer Lamy followed him as he walked east in the alley located between Lake Avenue and Spruce Street. The man picked up his pants in the alley and continued toward Union Street.

Officer Lamy positioned his cruiser on Union Street as the man approached him from the alley. The man stopped to put his pants on before he turned around to walk in the opposite direction toward Pine Street. Officer Lamy caught up with him on Pine Street and identified him as Mefen Rowell, 28, of Manchester.

The officer determined Rowell had ingested Spice prior to the encounter, so AMR responded to the scene to medically clear him. He was charged with indecent exposure and resisting arrest/detention. Rowell is scheduled to appear in the 9th Circuit Court-Manchester on July 17, 2017.
