Deputies Arrest Naked Fisherman On Medical Lake

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Deputies arrested a 54-year-old Spokane Valley man Sunday after he was spotted fishing naked on the west bank of West Medical Lake.

A father fishing with his two young sons complained to the resort manager after he spotted Dean H. Meginniss fishing completely naked about 2:15 p.m. He told deputies by phone that the suspect stood up in full view of the kids as their boat moved down the lake.

By the time Deputies Mike Beckman and Ray Miller arrived, the resort employees had walked down the shoreline and told the suspect to put on clothing. He donned a pair of light-colored shorts and was still fishing with his fully-clothed friend when deputies contacted him by boat.

Beckman checked Meginniss' name and learned he had an outstanding arrest warrant charging him with Stalking. He arrested Meginniss on the warrant, and also for Indecent Exposure.  The suspect was previously convicted for indecent exposure in 2009, making Sunday's arrest a felony.

The deputies transported Meginniss back to the resort by boat and then booked him into the Spokane County Jail.

Resort staff reported that they had been receiving complaints off and all throughout this summer of a man fishing naked along the lakeshore.
