OTTAWA — A convicted pedophile was arrested for nudity and breaching probation three and a half hours after being released from jail in west Quebec.

Cops spotted Luc Lucien Fournier, 51, of Gatineau, was released at 10 a.m. Wednesday, after serving time for sexual contact and forcible confinement of a child.

At 1:30 p.m., patrolling cops spotted him nearly naked by a bike path close to a high school.

"The seriousness of this case is because of the history of Mr. Fournier," Gatineau Police Sgt. J.P. Lemay said.

Fournier has breached probation on numerous occasions in the past, said Lemay, "mostly going places where he's not allowed to go."

He was scheduled to appear in court Thursday, to face four counts of breaching probation and one count of nudity in a public place.
