Check out this news item from the 1909 London Daily Mirror, courtesy Marco Pusterla of The Ephemeral Collector. Bill Kalush in The Secret Life of Houdini says Houdini was ultimately prosecuted for being improperly dressed and for bathing in the Seine during prohibited hours. I've also read that the charge was "walking on the grass." Either way, enjoy.
