David A. Goodman the naked mailman shows his naked mug
David A. Goodman, looking sad that his joke fell flat
Whitefish Bay Police Department
Last week we learned that things had gone terribly wrong for David A. Goodman, a 52-year-old Wisconsin letter carrier who decided to deliver the mail naked.
Goodman thought his prank would elicit a few chuckles from 21-year-old Tiffany Washington, a worker at a legal office who Goodman had pegged as a little "stressed out." So he dropped his uniform, knocked on the door, and handed Washington the mail.
Washington was not amused. She turned away from him, and held out her hand.
"Give me the mail and get out of here," she said.
We reported this to you last Thursday. Since then, we're pretty sure the Whitefish Bay Police Department has been swamped with media calls--the mug we requested last week came in just this morning.
Picture him naked.
Goodman looks pretty sad in his mugshot, and we can understand why. According to the police report, Goodman thought he and Washington had a friendly mailman-client relationship going. He told police that, after delivering one batch of mail to Washington, he'd made a joke, kidding with her that he'd come back and deliver a second batch to her naked.
"Oh come on. You don't have the balls to do that," she said, according to Goodman.
Goodman took Washington's comment as a dare, he told police. He came back about ten minutes later, completely in the buff.
Unfortunately, Washington doesn't remember things happening that way. She told police she never heard Goodman make any comment about coming back naked. She certainly didn't dare him, she said.
Oops. Let's just say we think it's pretty safe to bet that Goodman won't be delivering anything but court documents for the foreseeable future...
