Jonny Fernandez, 21, was a student at Brevard Community College. But now he is charged with battery on a school official, disruption of an educational institute, breach of peace, indecent exposure of sexual organs and resisting arrest without violence.
Police found Fernandez wearing brown shorts and standing by the north breezeway of the campus, but several students said that Fernandez had been standing in the middle of the campus completely nude.
“I was nude because that’s the way I was born,” Fernandez told police, adding that he wasn’t on any medication.
Fernandez’s mother arrived at the school, and while police talked to her, Fernandez ran through the campus, police said.
Officers and campus security chased Fernandez, who ran into and hit Associate Provost Administrator James Darby, leaving Darby with a cut on his bottom lip, police said.
Fernandez was apprehended by the Palm Bay Police Department and taken to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, police said.
