Oakland, Calif., cops arrested a carpenter who likes to practice his craft as nature intended after a client returned home early and busted the craftsman building bookcases in his birthday suit.
Percy Honniball was charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure for the incident, the Associated Press reports.
But Honniball insists his penchant for working in the nude isn't for pleasure. He says that when he's building things in the buff he has a greater range of motion — and it prevents him from soiling his clothes.
"In certain situations such as demolitions where you are smashing rock you want to be clothed and protected because this rock can harm you," he said.
And it seems he speaks from experience. Honniball has been caught on the job naked three times in the last six years.
