Gary Giordano, who had been held for four months in the disappearance of Robyn Gardner in Aruba, was arrested in Maryland after he was found naked with another woman in the back of a Cadillac Escalade, police say.

Giordano, 51, and a woman identified as Carol Bock, 45, of Tennessee were arrested for investigation of indecent exposure after they were discovered by Annapolis police responding to a call of possible sexual activity in a car in a parking garage last Friday evening.

When officers shined a light through an SUV window, the pair were seen lying naked on a mattress in the rear cargo area with a blanket hanging "in what appeared to be an attempt to conceal their activity,” say charging documents reported by the Washington Times.

Giordano had been a suspect in the disappearance of traveling partner Gardner in Aruba in August 2011. He claimed she never returned from a snorkeling trip they took together.



Authorities questioned his story and kept him in jail until a judge ordered him released last November. No charges have been filed in that case.

The indecent exposure charge carries a $1,000 fine or up to three years in jail. A lawyer for Giordano was not immediately available for comment.
