Steven Ettinger was arrested at the Asbury Boardwalk Civil Disobedience Swimsuit Party

So on Saturday I headed up to the Asbury Park Civil Disobedience Swimsuit Party, which ended up being a celebration as the 1958 ordinance was repealed a few days prior to the event.  It seems that the City Council may not have wanted the press that comes with a scantily clad protest.

The ordinance said: “No person clad in bathing attire shall be on the boardwalk or the public walks adjacent thereto.”

Since that changed, most of us expected no one would be arrested.  It seemed we were wrong.

Dave Cahill was an awesome performer.  I spoke along with Eddie Free, Danny Panzella, Garrett Fox, Chris Cantwell, and Adam Kokesh.  During Adam’s speech, he asked Steve Ettinger to show everyone his “Borat style thong”.

After Steve showed his thong, he was arrested for indecent exposure.

You can watch the ustream of the entire event here.

Here’s a video of just the arrest.

“Borat” Arrested for Swimsuit Malfunction in Asbury Park NJ

After the arrest, the people gathering were told that they were no longer allowed to use amplified sound or sing, so Dave Cahill started singing and playing his guitar to call their bluff – that was pretty awesome to watch, especially after he put on his alien mask.

Steven Ettinger has a hearing to decided whether charges will be pressed. The hearing is July 27th, 2012, at 10 am at the Asbury Park Court.  Steve has created a chipin asking for donations as he has a 9 hour trip (round trip) to get to the court.  He may need even more if he is charged as he may be looking at a $1,000 fine.

FIND THE CHIPIN HERE!

For those who couldn’t attend the event, instead of buying Steve a drink, donate a round to his chipin! I am!

Hear my account of the event!
