The lawyer of United Pilates claims that & # 39; it is not a crime to be naked in Denver, even if you are a man & # 39;
Andrew Collins was arrested on September 20 because he was standing naked in front of his hotel window on the 10th floor overlooking Denver International Airport.
Images have been released from the moment that a United Airlines pilot was detained by the police for offensive exposure, as his lawyers claim it is not a crime to be naked in Denver & # 39 ;.
Andrew Collins was arrested on September 20 because he was standing naked in front of his hotel window on the 10th floor overlooking Denver International Airport. He has not pleaded guilty to the charges for offenses.
& # 39; It is not a crime to be naked in Denver, even if you are a man, & # 39; wrote the lawyer of Denver, Craig Silverman, in a motion for his client, according to The Denver Post.
It is certainly not a crime to be naked in his lawful home in Denver, which implies legal occupation of the hotel room. & # 39;
He added that Collins had no idea that people could see him when he partially opened the curtains.
Silverman shared video about the arrest by the body clocks of two officers. The video was edited for a long time, but showed that a shirtless Collins was stuck.

In a separate motion for dismissal, Silverman also says the authorities lacked a probable cause to prove the case.
& # 39; There is no reference to any evidence, because there is no such evidence, that the naked man in room 1017 did something with the intention of awakening or satisfying the sexual desire of a person, which is essential for the crime of indecent exposure & # 39; Claimed Silverman.
When Captain Collins asked officer K. Coleman why he was arrested, Coleman said he was arrested for lethal acts and indecent exposure, and wrongly claimed that there were incriminating photos, & # 39; claimed Silverman.
At the time of his arrest, Collins had been called with captain Jamie Ferguson of United Airlines for 20 minutes. The two discussed Collins' career for president of the Air Line Pilots Association. He has since stopped.
United Airlines has suspended Collins, from Leesburg, Virginia, pending an internal review.

Collins admitted he was in the window, but denied that he was deliberately parading, despite several witness statements to the contrary. He did not plead guilty to the misconduct charge Wednesday in Denver County Court.
According to a likely police statement, Collins at the Westin Hotel deliberately and deliberately exposed its genitals to the general public in September.
The Virginia man says he did not know people could see him when he opened the curtains to look at the landscape in the window of the 10th floor of his Westin Hotel room at Denver International Airport.
"We do not dispute that I was standing naked in front of the hotel window", said the 22-year-old veteran of the September 20 incident, according to the Denver Post.
Spokeswoman Erin Benson of United Airlines said in November that the pilot had been suspended pending an internal review.
A TSA agent informed the police that he saw him, & Leesburg, Virginia & # 39; and waved to him from the 10th floor of the Westin Hotel at Denver International Airport
A TSA agent informed the police that he saw Leesburg, Virginia, man & # 39; touch himself & # 39; and waved at him, but Collins claimed that was not the case. "A few witnesses said I danced, turned and waved," he added. & # 39; I am completely innocent. It is really unfortunate that it happened completely. & # 39;
The Denver police said Collins & # 39; knowingly & # 39; himself, reported that two United workers and one passenger saw the man and made credible statements about what he was doing.
& # 39; From this hotel room you can not see people going about their business in the hallway & # 39 ;, claimed lawyer Craig Silverman. & # 39; The windows in the hall are tinted green and are opaque and reflective. It is just like looking at a green wall or a green mirror & # 39;
& # 39; The suspect did open the window to his hotel room, which overlooks the hotel square, and in full view of the audience he stood completely naked in his window, exposing him and his genitals to the general public, & # 39; stated a police report.
On the day of the incident, Collins said that he had been awake for more than 30 hours and had been sent to various airports, while a heavy thunderstorm was pounding the country. He did not get up until 10.30 am, very late for the pilot.
& # 39; I got ready to shower and phone & # 39 ;, he explained. & # 39; It was a beautiful morning and I opened the curtains in front of my window. I could not see the terminal. & # 39;
The pilot claimed to have been on the phone for about 24 minutes.
Soon after, the police began pounding on his door and let his arms draw when he opened. Collins was handcuffed and taken to the airport prison.
& # 39; It was a surreal experience, I will tell you, & # 39; he said.
Collins is & # 39; removed from its position pending an internal review. & # 39;
Facebook indicates that the man is married to a flight attendant named Jill Babich
Craig Silverman, a popular talk show host and lawyer for Collins, said in November that he went to the hotel room where his client had been.
& # 39; From this hotel room you can not see people walking around the hall, & # 39; claimed Silverman. & # 39; The windows in the hall are tinted green and are opaque and reflective. It is like looking at a green wall or a green mirror. & # 39;
But Silverman discovered that people could look into the hotel from the hall.
& # 39; From inside the hall, at that time of the morning, outside of my client's knowledge, you can see the Westin rooms, but the distance is such that you can not see much else than a human form. My client had a reasonable expectation that no one could look into his window. He was not aware of people looking at him as he focused on his important phone call as he walked through his room, "Silverman said.
& # 39; There is no evidence of any sexual activity that shows an intention to induce or satisfy the sexual desire of a person. & # 39;
Collins was at the head of the Air Line Pilots Association at the time of the arrest. After he was arrested, Collins decided to withdraw his campaign, even though only three weeks had passed.
& # 39; I closed the campaign afterwards, & # 39; said Collins.
His Facebook profile suggests that the man is married to a flight attendant named Jill Babich.
