KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — The explanation seems sound, allowing for alcohol consumption.
Joseph Michael Hall told police he stole a Bobcat front-end loader from a landscaping nursery in Knox County because he was naked.
The Knoxville News Sentinel reported police found the 19-year-old Hall driving the machine along a highway shortly after 7 a.m. Sunday, sans clothing.
The arrest warrant states Hall said he was trying to hide his nudity by taking the Bobcat.
A caller to 911 reported someone smashed through a fence with the machine and drove off in it. Hall was arrested less than a mile away and the owner was called to come and retrieve his machine.
It wasn't immediately known where or why Hall lost his clothes. Among the charges are felony theft, DUI and indecent exposure.
