A 41-year-old Connecticut man was cuffed after turning up five days late for a dental appointment in his birthday suit, the Connecticut Post reports.

Christopher Hoff earlier this week arrived at the Stratford clinic stark bollock naked, provoking a fit of the screaming abdabs in the female receptionist. He then legged it, later to be confronted by police at his house.

He was hauled back before the traumatised receptionist, who identified him because his "eyes are very blue and he has a good tan", as a female cop put it.

While in custody, Hoff apparently refused to be fingerprinted. He's being held in lieu of $10k bail on "two counts of disorderly conduct and one count each of public indecency and failure to comply with fingerprinting". ®
