A neighbor first saw the naked Mertz at around eight in the morning dressed in a cap, glasses and a soft towel. That neighbor again saw Mertz later in the morning and the towel which was gone. Other witnesses reported to the Walpole police of seeing Mr. Mertz. One witness said she saw the man naked in his drive way and that he made no attempt to cover up himself, going about pushing his waist onto his mail box as he stepped by. She described him in a remarkable fine detail, confirming that he was burly with a paunch, black face and body hair.
When police arrived they found Mertz outside wearing on ski googles and a hat and nothing more. Mertz was arrested and arraigned in the Wrentham District Court on charges of open and gross lewdness and indecent exposure. He has since been placed on administrative leave from teaching.
