Two San Diegans have been arrested in Thailand for allegedly posing for pictures showing their naked buttocks at the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun).
The Bangkok Post reported that the pair, later identified as Travis and Joseph DaSilva, were arrested at Don Mueang airport Tuesday night as they tried to leave the country.
Pol Col Choenron Rimpadee, deputy spokesman of immigration police, said the two men admitted to taking down their pants, bending over and posing for photos at the temple. They were brought to the Bangkok Yai police station and charged.
According to the report the offense violates criminal law and is liable to a fine of up to 5,000 baht ($154).
City Commissioner Nicole Murray Ramirez, who officiated at Travis’ first marriage, told San Diego LGBT Weekly that he was in contact with government officials in order to assist the two San Diegans.
