Drunk dude runs naked & breaks windows

A man was arrested after he allegedly flew into a drunken rage, stripped to his socks and skivvies, yelled at passing cars and began smashing windows in a Stream Road garage door.

Matt Powers, 33, of Monroe, who cut himself while breaking the windows, was arrested by Deputy Ben Seekins of the Waldo County Sheriff's Department outside the Stream Road home at 4:15 p.m.

Seekins said Powers was unable to explain the reason for his outburst. "He was very intoxicated," Seekins said Sunday.

Powers was charged with criminal trespass, criminal mischief and public indecency and taken to the Waldo County Jail. He was released on $200 bail Sunday morning.

Seekins said the incident began around 4 p.m. when a neighbor told the county dispatch center that a naked man was on the road, yelling and challenging passing cars.

"He had a cut hand and some lacerations to his arms," Seekins said. "When I first got there, I doctored him up because he just had a lot of blood dripping from his right hand. Then I arrested him."

Powers was taken to Waldo County General Hospital where his wound was treated. He was then booked at the Waldo County Jail. A friend came by later to gather his clothes, said Seekins.

"When I got there, all he had on was his underwear and socks," Seekins said. "He was very intoxicated. He didn't realize what he was doing or even that he cut himself as badly as he did."

Wow. Probably made for a great, "This one time I got really drunk and..." story. Article here.
