Naked-mile.com Offers Free Footage From University Of Michigan Nude Webcast, Free Tapes to Students Arrested For Participating in Infamous College Event

    ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- This
 year's Naked Mile Run at the University was a complete bust.
     A bust for those who signed up to watch the event online and for the
 estimated crowd of 7,000 who lined the streets, braving near-freezing weather
 to catch a glimpse of the action.
     It was also a bust for the handful of students who ran in the event, with
 at least a dozen of them being charged by Ann Arbor Police with indecent
 exposure.
     For the last 12 years, students there have celebrated the last day of
 classes by running totally naked down the University streets.  The tradition
 was started by several athletic teams and has grown ever since.
     Previously, University police stood by to make sure students didn't get
 hurt.  But this year, students had to run part of the route off of University-
 owned property because of construction projects.  As students set foot in Ann
 Arbor city limits, Ann Arbor police were there to snag the naked students as
 they ran past the cheering crowd.
     "The police ruined it this year," said one student.  "We were just trying
 to have fun, and they absolutely ruined it."
     This year was the first run covered live by Atlanta-based Cyber Management
 Inc. who hired a professional camera crew and satellite truck to beam footage
 to webcam subscribers watching the event at naked-mile.com.
     "Obviously, we're disappointed," said CMI spokesman Brian Cohn.
     CMI hired a special crew to film a documentary of the event, and Cohn said
 the footage captured by reporter Heather Maureen is a raw and honest look at
 Tuesday's event.
     "We have footage of police in what looks like riot gear," he said.
 "Students were chasing us down to give us interviews about what a disaster the
 event turned out to be."
     The company is offering the footage free-of-charge to University students
 arrested for running on Tuesday.  Students can send an e-mail to
 arrested@naked-mile.com for more information.
     "It's the least we can do," Cohn said.  "Maybe their attorneys will be
 able to use the footage we captured."
     Free images and video clips are available at the site so viewers from
 around the world can have a behind-the-scenes look at what local news crews
 couldn't show their viewers.
