No, It Is Not A Crime For A 57-Year-Old Guy To Carry A Rifle While Only Wearing Light Blue Thong Underwear

Meet Ricky Dale Rector.

Police were dispatched Saturday afternoon to the 57-year-old Rector’s South Carolina residence in response to a 911 call about “a man in his underwear sitting on his porch with a long-gun.”

When a cop arrived at the home in Woodruff (pop. 4090), Rector was wearing only a "light blue pair of thong underwear," according to a police report. After ordering Rector off his porch, the officer retrieved the unloaded rifle and a cartridge from a nearby table.

“Ricky was asked why he was in his underwear and sitting on the porch with a rifle. He stated he was looking for deer,” the cop reported.

Since Rector was not the subject of any outstanding warrants (and had no felony convictions), he was uncuffed and given back his rifle and round. But before departing, the officer noted, “Ricky was advised to avoid this in the future.”

“This” hopefully being wearing light blue thong underwear at the age of 57.
