A Catholic priest faces an indecent exposure charge after police said he went jogging in the nude about an hour before sunrise in Frederick, southeast of Longmont.
The Reverend Robert Whipkey told officers he had been running naked at a high school track, and didn't think anyone would be around at that time of day.
Whipkey told officers he sweats profusely if he wears clothing while jogging. A police report indicates Whipkey told police that he knew what he did was wrong.
Whipkey did not return phone messages. Attorney Doug Tisdale told the Daily Times-Call in Longmont that Whipkey had no comment.
Police arrested the 53-year-old Whipkey on June 22nd.
The Archdiocese of Denver says it takes the incident seriously, but is awaiting the outcome of the case.
Whipkey remains an active priest.
Prosecutors say he would have to register as a sex offender if convicted of indecent exposure.
