Man nabbed for walking naked in his garden to harass neighbor
Mainichi Daily News ^ | 7/14/06 | Staff

A man who frequently walked naked in the garden of his home to harass a couple living next door has been arrested, police said.

Toshio Shoji, 62, a pensioner from Kameoka, Kyoto Prefecture, is accused of violating a Kyoto prefectural ordinance that prohibits people from creating a nuisance.

Shoji admitted to the allegations during questioning. "I got furious when they complained to me that I was standing naked, so I did it to harass them," he was quoted as telling investigators.

Between May 18 and June 14, Shoji kept watch on a 48-year-old self-employed man and his 47-year-old wife living next door, investigators said. Whenever the wife appeared on a balcony to hang out the washing, he shouted at her, "Idiot," and banged a bucket. Moreover, Shoji walked naked in the garden of his home on at least 19 occasions, police said.

Shoji began to harass his neighbors after the husband asked the suspect not to walk on the premises of his home while naked. (Mainichi)

They should have brought out a camera, and told the man they were going to post his pictures on the internet, that might have led to a quick run for clothes. Or not.

On the list of what's wrong with the world, right below terrorists is neighbors.
