As you know, Burck was arrested in Union Square last Friday for doing his usual naked cowboy crap, either not knowing or not caring that you need a permit to perform in the area. (So, those gold and silver guys get permits? Mind: boggling.)

Now the Examiner is reporting that the Naked Cowboy shrugged off his shackles and returned to NY last night, after it was discovered that his arresting officer "wrote the wrong code on the ticket and the citation was invalidated." We can only hope any arrests resulting from performances of our similarly unpermitted street act, "The Naked Muni Driver" ends in similar SFPD ineptitude.

Gothamist, back to you!
