  • 1981: Bengal Ball held at East Bank. Donnie C. McAnelly, a 31-year old textile employee from Pendleton, is arrested at his home around 8 p.m. and is charged with indecent exposure and aggravated assault, after he is identified by his vehicle license tag after at least 20-25 incidents where he was seen jogging nude at East Bank and in the Horticultural Gardens. Police had been after the nude jogger for over a year, with four or five sightings in the last month. Jim Brummitt, chief inspector for campus police, said that he was becoming more brazen, not only in the frequency of his appearances, but also in their severity. "A couple of times recently he has put his hands on females," said Brummitt. "In one instance he tried to pull a female's pants off." The suspect was released on $10,000 bond.
