Man Known For Riding Unicycle Naked Died After Being Hit

LA PORTE, Texas (AP) — A Houston-area man known by police for riding his unicycle naked has died after being hit by a vehicle while clothed and pedaling at night.

La Porte  police say 48-year-old Joseph Glynn Farley of Clear Lake was killed Tuesday night when his unicycle was hit from behind by an SUV.

Sgt. John Krueger on Wednesday said Farley was wearing black shorts, a backpack and apparently a reflective vest, which was found nearby. Krueger says the unicycle had lights and was operating legally on a thoroughfare.

The SUV driver, who wasn’t hurt, called 911 to report the accident.

Kemah police in 2012 accused Farley of riding naked, distracting drivers and creating a hazard. Farley was cited for misdemeanor indecent exposure.

Kemah police on Wednesday didn’t immediately return a message.
