A Swedish police officer was forced to make an arrest in his birthday suit after he sat down next to a wanted criminal in a sauna.
The off-duty officer from Rinkeby was reportedly enjoying a sauna session on his day off when he recognized a man wanted for drug offenses and aggravated assault.
According to ABC.net.au, the fully nude officer did not let a lack of equipment stop him, and took the man into custody with nothing but the sweat on his back.
“By a coincidence, and rather amusingly, they both recognized each other in the sauna,” Rinkeby deputy police chief Christoffer Bohman. “It’s easier to take action when you have your colleagues with you, and all your tools and equipment. This was as stripped-down as it gets- in more ways than one.”
The officer was praised by Rinkeby PD, who did not release the lawman’s identity.
“We are everywhere,” the agency said. “Even if you don’t see us, we are there.”
