Man Armed With Leaf Blower Arrested For Doing Yard Work In The Nude
http://www.thesmokinggun.com ^ | 08-08-2014 | Staff

A Massachusetts homeowner was arrested Monday for “open and gross lewdness” after passing motorists spotted him--leaf blower in hand--doing yard work in the nude, according to cops.

As Richard Capra, 69, worked on the curb appeal of his Shrewsbury home, “several vehicles were slowing down taking photographs,” according to the Shrewsbury Police Department.

Responding to 911 calls, Officer Timothy Charland spotted Capra “completely nude, blowing off his driveway with a leaf blower.” Capra was “intoxicated and belligerent towards police” when questioned.

Capra, arrested on a misdemeanor charge, was later released from custody after posting $500 bail. He is scheduled for an August 15 appearance in Westboro District Court.

Future arrestees will be happy to learn that Capra was “issued clothing” prior to being placed in a Shrewsbury patrol car.

Oh, and somebody needs to tell Wild Bill Klinton, a “blower” in this context is an air-moving device. Hmmm, new thought, DON’T tell him.....

I wonder if this guy doesn’t have some other mental problems besides just being drunk.

I’d have to pass out in order to be that stupid drunk. And then of course, I wouldn’t be standing up.

Of all the things to do outside while naked, using a leaf blower in the yard would not be high on my list. The twigs, little stones and other debris that flies up in the air would hurt!

OMG, not sure if you meant the twigs and stones would hit certain delicate places. But especially if there was a direct hit, you might be out of commission for a while............

It’s a wonder the police didn’t fill him full of lead. After all, they could argue that a leaf blower kind of looks like a flame thrower.

Things could have turned tragic. He should be grateful the police got there before he started using the hedge clippers.

Thank goodness for our illegals here in SoCal. Doing the naked leaf blowing Americans just won’t do.
