STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Police in Starkville have arrested a man accused of going out naked in public as far back as early last year.

James Harmon Duke, 22, was arrested Wednesday morning by officers dressed as joggers. He is charged with seven counts of indecent exposure.

Police say they started in February 2017 looking into reports of someone appearing naked in the area of University Drive.  Sightings apparently stopped after that.

Then in recent weeks, calls came in again of a naked man in the same area, generally seen between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m.
