Sometimes you want to mediate naked on the sidewalks of Florida.

Police arrested a nude man Thursday after he was caught meditating naked near a bus stop in Florida, the Smoking Gun reports.

Authorities in St. Petersburg, Fla., arrested Carl Wright, 46, who now faces a disorderly conduct charge after mediating naked in public.

Officer Brian Rivera said in a misdemeanor criminal complaint that Wright was "sitting naked in a meditation like pose while completely nude" around 9:50 a.m. Wright was in "plain, public sight, behind a bus stop."

Police said Wright is a transient and has been arrested a number of times in the past two years for trespassing. He's also been charged for disorderly conduct and public urination.
