Not generally known for its scenic views, drivers along the Long Island Expressway over the last two weeks have been getting an eyeful from a man who has been walking naked along the side of the road in Suffolk County. After reports of his nudity had poured in on eight of the previous nine days, police finally caught up with Joseph Galigano coming out of the woods near Exit 57 on the LIE in Yaphank on Thursday night. Galigano rushed to get away and drove his jeep onto the wrong side of the road, but quickly surrendered to cops. The 39-year-old butcher was charged with public lewdness, disorderly conduct, reckless driving and several vehicle and traffic violations. Newsday reports that Galigano has a previous charge of public lewdness along with endangering the welfare of a child back in 1997. After being arrested, he told police that he had personal problems and that his streaking was "some kind of rush for him."
