‘We are everywhere’: Naked cop arrests nude fugitive in Swedish sauna
A naked Swedish police officer didn’t let his vulnerable state get in the way of arresting a wanted fugitive after awkwardly bumping into him in a steamy sauna.

The Stockholm-based officer made the arrest on Friday evening after noticing a perp, who was on the run from charges for drugs and attempting to assault an official, through the clouds of steam in the compact sauna.

“It's easier to take action when you have your colleagues with you, and all your tools and equipment. This was as stripped-down as it gets – in more ways than one.”

Rinkeby police praised the officer for the swift takedown in a Facebook post entitled “naked arrest.” The statement commended the officer for keeping his head cool “when it was heating up to a potentially dangerous situation, despite being on your day off and relaxing in a spa.
