Steven Whitten's thong burglary prompts order to see shrink

Steven Whitten, the guy caught on tape last year running away from a woman's apartment near the University of Minnesota while wearing nothing but a woman's thong, won't be going to jail, but he will be going to see a psychiatrist.

But if he pull a stunt like that again, it's bye bye shrink, hello clink, a Hennepin County judge said at his sentencing.

Police arrested the 19-year-old last August after a woman called to say a partially nude man came into her bedroom while she was sleeping. She asked him who he was and the startled man ran off -- and got caught on surveillance video.

Police say he admitted that he was in the apartment earlier picking up an iPod and dropping off a key, then he returned and entered the woman's bedroom.
