19-year-old steals machine to hide nudity


A naked man was found driving a stolen construction machine in Knoxville on Sunday.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported that 19-year-old Joseph Michael Hall was caught around 7 a.m. after receiving a 911 call.

Hall allegedly got inside a front-end loader at a landscaping nursery and smashed through a fence before driving away.

He told police he stole the Bobcat because he was naked and needed to hide his nudity.

It was not immediately known where or how Hall lost his clothes.

He is charged with felony theft, DUI and indecent exposure.
