Kaohsiung, April 23 (CNA) A man was arrested Friday for taking a stroll on the
streets in a dinosaur costume a day earlier, during an air defense exercise in the southern city of Kaohsiung.
Police arrested the man, identified only by his surname Kao, after images of what appeared to be a small dinosaur roaming the streets in Kaohsiung were posted on a website known for exposés.
The authorities traced the man to the store where he worked thanks to surveillance cameras installed at intersections.
According to the Gushan Precinct of the Kaohsiung City Police Department, Kao took a stroll on Mingcheng 3rd Road in a dinosaur costume when traffic ban was imposed in the city and other parts of southern Taiwan for the annual Wan An air defense exercise.
The exercise has been taking place since March in different parts of Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
