Grandfather, 72, is arrested for strutting through the streets of Argentina wearing just a THONG to protest the presence of prostitutes and drug users in his neighborhood
- Alberto Mattar was arrested in Argentina on Monday after walking down a street wearing a thong to protest the presence of sex workers and drug users
- The 72-year-old grandfather claims he and his neighbors have filed reports with the local police station over the transsexual prostitutes in his neighborhood
- Mattar said the prostitutes and drug users dump used condoms and drug paraphernalia in the streets near his home
- He vowed to continue to wear a bikini in the streets until he dies to make sure the vagrants are driven out
This is the moment a septuagenarian almost bared it all in protest of the transsexual prostitutes and drug users who have taken over his neighborhood.
Cell phone footage shows Alberto Mattar, 72, strutting the streets of west-central Argentina on Monday afternoon wearing a red thong – which he says was ‘uncomfortable’ – socks and black shoes while he carrying a briefcase.
The grey-haired grandfather was arrested minutes after pacing around the 25th of May Plaza in San Juan, the capital city of the province of San Juan.
He was taken to a police station house but was released and not charged.
Alberto Mattar says he and his neighbors are tired of seeing transsexual prostitutes and drug users in his neighborhood in Argentina. He wore a thong to protest their presence and was arrested
The 72-year-old boasted that he will continue to walk around wearing just a thong to protest the presence of sex workers and drug users that litter the streets with used condoms and drug paraphernalia
‘I put on the thong because I thought there must be a law that protects them, and I dressed the same way. But it seems that the law doesn’t protect me,’ Mattar said according to El Doce TV.
‘It’s the only way I see that the population finds out.’
Mattar says that he and his neighbors have grown tired of filing reports with the local police precinct.
Their claims, apparently, have gone unnoticed while the prostitutes and drug addicts litter the vicinity with used condoms and drug paraphernalia.
‘The issue here is not only sexual [workers] but drugs,’ Mattar said.
‘There are neighbors who have made the complaint and, if I did not claim in this way, we would not be talking about the issue now. … Now that I’ve recently wore the thong is when they investigate,’ he added.

Alberto Mattar says the bikini was ‘uncomfortable’ but that he will wear it again if he has to continue his quest to make sure drug users and sex workers are driven out from the vicinity of his home
Mattar also accused local politicians and command leaders at the police station of being in cahoots with the vagrants because ‘they don’t do anything.’
Mattar is hellbent on driving the drug users and sex workers out of his neighborhood.
‘I am willing to continue until I die. I know that I am also risking my life,’ Mattar told Tiempo de San Juan.
‘I want everyone to know if something happens to me is not because of suicide, it was because I was killed.’
