Man Charged After Sunbathing Nude in Front of Stranger's Home
Suspect, 20, allegedly walked to the home wearing nothing but a bandanna wrapped around his face and sunglasses.
A Town of Brookfield man is facing charges after he allegedly walked in the nude to another home where he suntanned in a stranger's chair, wearing nothing but his sunglasses and a bandanna wrapped around his face.
The man also was arrested early Friday morning after being seen driving a stolen vehicle — one month after he was caught smoking hashish in a vehicle stolen from the Town Hall parking lot, police and court records say.
Derek D. Knight, 20, was arrested about 1:30 a.m. Friday after driving into a condominium complex in the 17800 block of West Wisconsin Avenue in a car that was reported as stolen.
Knight was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Friday with lewd and lascivious behavior, disorderly conduct, operating a vehicle without owner's consent, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of bail jumping.
According to the criminal complaint and police reports:
Knight walked nude to a Town of Brookfield home in the 17800 block of West Wisconsin Avenue about 1:30 p.m. June 29, and he sat down in a lawn chair near the front door.
A woman had been sitting in that chair but went inside to get a drink. When she returned outside, she found the man in her chair, naked but for the bandanna on his face.
Knight told the woman he was a neighbor and wanted to suntan. He continued to refuse to leave until police arrived. Knight told officers he was sun tanning and he had walked to the residence naked from his home in the 12300 block of Tremont Street in Brookfield. An officer said Knight was coherent and sarcastic, but may have been under the influence of a drug.
Knight had been released from court on a signature bond earlier that day June 29, after officers had found him asleep in a stolen car on June 27. In that case, Knight told police he had smoked hashish in the car.
His bail was set Friday at $1,500 and he returns to court Wednesday.
