Naked Man Alert! ... The Next Chapter 

In September 2006, Joe Cullen, a defensive assistant for the Detroit Lions and former assistant coach at Ole Miss, was arrested after driving naked through a fast food drive-in.

The saga continues...

Tearing through the news is the controversy over the Halloween costume of Lions quarterback Jon Kitna, who -- you guessed it -- was dressed as Cullen. Kitna was wearing a naked suit and was carrying a softdrink. His wife was dressed as a fast-food cashier in a red wig with pigtails a la the Wendy's mascot.

Cullen was hired by Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron. He was later fired after an incident involving drinking. After his arrest for being naked in Detroit, Cullen was arrested a second time a week later and charged with DUI. Cullen has since stayed out of trouble.

After the story spread about the Halloween costume, Kitna said that he spoken to Cullen and everything was fine between the two men.
