The man was arrested after being caught running around half naked.

A New Zealand man will be deported from Indonesia after he allegedly ran half-naked through a public garden.

The 28-year-old was arrested by Indonesian military officers and park officers after he allegedly jumped the fence to get into the Bogor Botanical Gardens on Tuesday night, reports Jawa Pos.

Police spokesman Syarief Hidayat said the man, named as JCC, jumped the fence because the gardens were good for meditation.

Wrapped only in a towel while running around the gardens, he said the man was hallucinating and thought he could fly.

Mr Hidayat said he tried to fly, bumped his head and fell unconscious. 

Despite JCC having all the required documents and entering Indonesia legally, immigration officials said he would be deported because he had entered the gardens illegally.

JCC has been in Indonesia since July 1. His visa will expire on July 30, according to the Jakarta Post.
