'Naked Rambler' Stephen Gough has been arrested just three days after being released from prison.
The former marine was freed from Perth Prison on Tuesday and vowed to continue his nude crusade.
Gough, 53, was spoken to by police when he was freed, but was then allowed to go on his way in an apparent shift in Tayside Police policy.
On the last few occasions Gough has been released he has been immediately arrested by officers waiting for him at the gates, but this time he was given the go-ahead to walk off despite being naked.
However, a spokesman for Fife Constabulary confirmed on Friday that he had been arrested at Townhill, Dunfermline at around 2pm for breach of the peace. He was arrested following complaints from members of the public.
At the time of his release Gough said: "I am going to head south and see what happens. I haven't seen my kids for ages. This is my job. This is my vocation in life at the moment. I have absolutely no regrets, especially now."
Gough, who had completed a 657-day sentence, revealed that he had spent the vast majority of his time in solitary confinement in maximum security at Perth Prison.
On his last release, Gough was arrested within 60 seconds and sentenced to imprisonment for breaching the peace.
Gough appeared naked in the dock at Perth Sheriff Court and was also found guilty of contempt of court for failing to display the "decency" required by the court process.
He had claimed being arrested for walking around naked was a breach of his human rights and his right to freedom of expression.
Gough has spent the vast majority of the past decade behind bars because of his refusal to put on any clothing.
He initially earned the title Naked Rambler by walking unclothed from Lands End to John O'Groats after quitting his job as a lorry driver.
