Vergennes Police Log: Officers persuade naked man with bike to get dressed

VERGENNES — Late this past Saturday Vergennes police dealt with a man who they said admitted drinking too much and was arguably wearing too little: He was naked when they first encountered him outside a First Street home.
City police responded to a call late on Saturday saying there was a naked man with a bicycle on Panton Road. When they arrived they found the man unclothed in a First Street yard. He then, police said, went onto the home’s porch and put on a pair of shoes.
After police persuaded the man to dress himself, police said the man told them he had consumed more than a dozen beers and then, while he was naked, had walked over to Hillside Drive to pick up his bicycle. Police contacted the man’s girlfriend and left him in her care.
In other incidents between July 16 and 22, Vergennes police:
On July 16:
•  Arrested Kyle Tebidor, 26, of Ferrisburgh at a traffic stop and cited him for operating with a criminally suspended license and driving without insurance, known as DLS. Police also learned there were an outstanding warrant for Tebidor for failing to appear in court to answer to charges of buying, selling, receiving or possessing stolen property, and another criminal DLS; they escorted him to Addison Superior Court, where he paid bail to be released.
