A Florida man is upsetting his neighbors because he likes to do his yardwork while naked. Residents have complained to the police, but they were told officers cannot do anything because the man is not breaking any laws.
"I came out Sunday night to put the trash out, and I look over and he is bent over, winding up his hose, and I'm like that is my view of the neighborhood," one of his neighbors, Melissa Ny, told WPBF-TV. "He works on his car, and he does it naked and everyone has called the police, he is just out there doing his yard work, whatever he needs to do outside, naked."
Another resident was concerned that children waiting for the school bus might see the man as he walks around his property while completely nude.
While indecent exposure is against the law in Florida, police told local residents that the man is allowed to be naked on his own private property as long as he does not touch himself inappropriately.
Martin County Sheriff William Snyder told Fox News that his department is working with a legal advisor to see if they can do anything to stop the man from being in his front yard without any clothing on. They are looking into various statutes and court rulings to see if they could bring charges against him for being naked in his front yard, as opposed to inside his home or in his backyard.
