Robert Burck Age
Robert Burck, 50, was arrested Saturday night during Bike Week in Daytona Beach, where he was playing his guitar in his usual outfit – white underwear, a cowboy hat and boots, a video posted on his Facebook page.
“Naked in Daytona!” The legend says.
A police report in the Daytona Beach News-Journal shows that Burck, a regular at Bike Week, “took photos with multiple viewers” who put money “into the hole of the central sound of the guitar.”
Burck’s actions violate a city ordinance that bans aggressive begging in Daytona Beach, according to the report.
The notorious 51-year-old “cowboy” reportedly refused to obey an officer’s orders and left.
An officer then pushed Burck against a patrol car – which resulted in the headstock bursting on Burck’s guitar, according to the video of the arrest and the report.
Burck was not injured and his wife took his guitar at his request, local media reported, citing police.
He was charged with aggressively begging and resisting a nonviolent officer and, according to the report, was released on Sunday at 11:15 a.m. on bail of $ 600.
The 80th annual Daytona Beach Bike Week started on Friday and ends on March 14th.
The naked cowboy was spotted in his usual playground in Times Square in early February during the monster blizzard.
In November, a cheeky attacker tried to rip Burck’s tight hair.
Burck appeared in front of City Hall during protests against police officers in the summer, but was quickly evicted by angry protesters who accused him of trying to cause trouble.
