    Police arrested a man who paraded nude through a busy street during rush hour traffic and attempted to trade in his bike for merchandise at a South Florida sex shop.

    The man was first spotted by witnesses who saw him riding a bike, naked, Thursday in the area of NE 6th Avenue and Wilton Drive, according to the Wilton Manors Police Department.

    He then entered the adult store -- RockHard Lovestuff on Wilton Drive -- took a pair of "a--less" underwear off the shelf, put it on, and told employees that he wanted to give them his bike in exchange for the underwear.

    According to a police report, the man left the store without paying for the underwear and without his bike. He headed back to Wilton Drive, walked up and down the busy street, and then removed his undergarment and exposed himself again.

    When officers responded, he told them his name was "Michael Jackson," the report said.

    The 38-year-old man, who authorities are calling "John Smith" because he refuses to identify himself, faces a charge of lewd and lascivious behavior, according to Broward jail records. He remains in jail and is awaiting trial.
