FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A 20-year-old Auburn man is facing a public indecency charge after he apparently took off all of his clothing inside in an Allen County Library.

According to the police report, the manager of the Allen County Library at 536 E. Dupont Road called police at about 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday. The manager told police the situation started after she confronted a man at a computer station wearing only his shorts – no other clothing.

The manager told police that she told the man, who police identified as Donn Avary Schmidt, that he needed to wear more clothing while in the library. The manager said Schmidt questioned the policy but left to get more clothing. However, as he was walking out, he took off his shorts and walked out completely naked.

The manager said that Schmidt then came back in, with his shorts back on, and asked to see the policy that required him to wear more clothing. She asked him to leave, and Schmidt again took off his short and walked out completely naked.

The manager followed him out and waited in the parking lot until police arrived, according to the police report. Schmidt was taken to the Allen County Jail. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
