Judge jailed after being found driving naked in town for third time in a year
A Supreme Court judge in the American state of Ohio has been indefinitely suspended after he was found driving naked through the city – for the third time in 12 months.
Scott Blauvelt, 50, has been a top law official in the area since 1997.
But he has had his career halted due to his strange penchant for driving naked.

Between 2018 and 2021, he was actually spotted doing it five times, with three of those coming in the last 12 months – but his latest attempt involved him flashing a middle-aged woman.
Having previously been found guilty of public indecency and reckless operation of a vehicle in 2020, he was put on a two-year programme to treat “compulsive sexual-behaviour disorder”, but that appears to not have worked.
According to local news, three months after his previous suspension in 2020, the Butler County Bar Association demanded an interim remedial suspension after he was again arrested for nude driving and exposing himself on two more occasions.
It was deemed that he posed a “substantial threat of serious harm to the public”.
And having pleaded guilty again this week, he was given a total of 14 days in jail and placed on probation for around two to five years.
The Supreme Court added that Scott Blauvelt is in” treatment for bipolar disorder and has expressed remorse for his behaviour”.
He has been told that he can return to practising law in the future, but has to prove that he is in full compliance with his mental-health treatment plan and orders from the Butler County Area III Court.

However, a court spokesman said that he “cannot offer any assurance that he will not engage in the same or similar conduct in the future”.
Upon his arrest, a local news channel tweeted: “A suspended Butler County attorney has once again been arrested for allegedly exposing himself.
“Court records indicate 50 year old Scott Blauvelt showed his private parts to a 53 year-old woman on SB I-75 near Union Centre Boulevard on December 16th, around 4pm.”
