3.00PM: An eyewitness has reported seeing a naked man near the home of MP Darren Hughes on the night of an alleged incident which is being investigated by police. Hughes stood down from his portfolios yesterday and even offered to resign, as news of the police investigation hit the headlines following a complaint from an 18-year-old man about an early morning incident after a night out drinking with the MP. reports several staff at a central Wellington business have said that a young man was spotted by the company's owner around 4.30am on March 2 near Moxham Ave and the south end of the Mount Victoria tunnel. "He was completely naked and was covering his penis with his hand," the staff member told the news site. "It looked like he was hitchhiking or waiting for a ride, he didn't look in a good way." The witness then saw a police car with its lights flashing coming through the tunnel from the city, so did not stop to help the nude man.
