A Yarmouth man faces charges of indecent conduct after he was captured running naked in Cascade Falls Park in Saco, police say.
Daniel J. Latham, 54, was spotted Tuesday walking naked on one of the trails in the park by Police Chief Bradley Paul.
Latham took off running deeper into the woods, but police caught up with him after a brief chase as he stopped to put on his pants, police said. Latham had some clothes with him and others were found alongside a trail.
Paul and Sgt. Bruce Cote had decided to check the town-owned Cascade Brook trail system at about 1:30 p.m. after receiving complaints from members of the public about suspicious and illicit behavior in the family-friendly park.

Latham's only explanation for his behavior was that he has always done that, said Deputy Chief Jeff Holland.
Latham is scheduled to appear in Biddeford District Court on the misdemeanor charge. He was released on $100 bail.
