Naked Biker Takes A Free Ride

J. Dante Krauss may not be a Hell's Angel, but he might be Ocala's most rebel biker.

There's no doubt J. Dante Krauss is an easy rider, but the Ocala man may have been riding a little too easy yesterday when he was pulled over by police while naked on his motorcycle.

Krauss, 45, was charged with a DUI after a Marion County deputy spotted him on I-75 early yesterday riding his bike in the buff.

After the officer pulled Krauss over at a red light, the rebel rider wasn't able to articulate why he was naked or where he was coming from. He admitted he had been drinking, and a Breathalyzer test turned up a .178 and a .162 blood alcohol level, well over the state's .08 legal limit.

"This guy is butt-naked, completely naked. He wasn't even wearing socks," Marion Couny Sheriff's Office spokesman Judge Cochran said. " He was a DUI motorcyclist. There's a chance he could hurt himself or hurt a family along the way."

The DUI charge was Krauss' fifth. He was released yesterday on $20,000 bail, hopefully with some loaner clothes.
