The man who lost gay pride arrest suit is the apparent suicide

SAN DIEGO – A man who lost a lawsuit against San Diego police, who arrested him for nudity during a gay pride festival has apparently committed suicide.

The San Diego Union-Tribune says (http://bit.ly/2hxCnyJ ) police were called to the apartment of 35-year-old Will X. Walters Wednesday but it is unclear how long he’d been dead. The case is being investigated by the medical examiner.

Walters’ attorney, Chris Morris, says that he had not heard from his client since Dec. 13 ruling.

Walters was arrested in 2011 during a gay pride event in Balboa Park for wearing a leather gladiator outfit that is not completely his buttocks.

Walters police called for anti-gay discrimination, but a federal jury ruled against him.

His legal team has said Walters racked up about $1 million in legal costs.
