LOGAN — A 53-year-old man was arrested after he was caught wandering naked on the grounds of the Logan Temple, saying he was looking for a wife, police said.

The Herald-Journal reports that Kelly Thayne Archibald dropped a blanket around his waist and climbed the gate of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple in Logan on Nov. 13.

Police say he told investigators that he was naked because that's how he entered the world.

Archibald is charged with lewdness by a sex offender, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He served prison time in Idaho after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a child under 16.

Archibald's lawyer declined to comment on the case Wednesday. The man's next court hearing is Dec. 5.
