Naked jogger nabbed near White House
Secret Service officials in Washington said a naked jogger was arrested near the White House and a suspicious package was found to be his clothes.
Malcolm Wiley, a spokesman for the Secret Service, said the man apparently shed his clothes at about 5 p.m. Wednesday and left them in a bag near an intersection while he jogged.

County cracks down on bikini baristas
A Washington State County has passed new regulations requiring baristas at coffee stands to strip down no further than their bikinis while at work.
The strengthened lewd conduct ordinance in Snohomish County came after neighbors of numerous coffee stands complained about bikini-clad baristas in nothing but thongs and pasties flashing customers and simulating sex acts in public view.
Servers at some coffee stands that follow the revealing clothing business model complained the new regulations will reduce their clientele.
Workers at Lady Bug Latte said they expect customers to flee across the street to the Cowgirls Espresso, which is located in King County and therefore not subject to the new rules.
"I mean, guys will drive here, take one look at us, and look us up and down. Then we'll watch them go across the street, and you know that's all they want," barista Tristina Lochmann said.
Some cities within the country, including county seat Everett, are exempt from the strengthened regulations due to local ordinances
Swiss court fines millionaire $290,000
A Swiss millionaire has been handed down a record speeding fine of $290,000 (£180,000) by a court.
The man was reportedly caught driving a red Ferrari Testarossa at 137km/h (85mph) through a village.
The penalty was calculated based on the unnamed motorist's wealth - assessed by the court as $22.7m (£14.1m) - and because he was a repeat offender.
It is more than double Switzerland's previous record speeding fine - handed to a Porsche driver in Zurich in 2008.
In the latest case, the motorist was clocked speeding 57km/h (35mph) faster than the limit, according to the cantonal court in St Gallen, eastern Switzerland.
"The accused ignored elementary traffic rules with a powerful vehicle out of a pure desire for speed," the court said in its judgment.
Swiss media reported that the man owns a villa with five luxury cars, including the Ferrari.
