    Police responded to a 7-Eleven on Aquidneck Avenue in Middletown around 3 p.m. April 3 for a report of a naked customer. The owner said the man with a "smile on his face" purchased a Diet Coke, and left in a car.

    The owner said she "went into shock and called 911 because she thought the man might assault her," according to the police report.

    The owner gave police a license plate number, and the car, with two fully-clothed occupants inside, was pulled over a short time later. The passenger said she "dared" her boyfriend to go into the store nude because he said it was legal in Rhode Island.
