Authorities in Florida say a scantily clad man was causing a disturbance near a residence in Martin County recently.
According to KPLC, a resident reportedly spotted the man trespassing onto his property and building a makeshift shed.
According to an arrest report filed in connection with the case, the suspect — identified as 31-year-old George Blankin — “was wearing a swimsuit and then a thong.”
In addition to the construction project, the homeowner said he also caught Blankin throwing chairs across the yard and otherwise creating a scene.
Police reported that the suspect “stated he was an artist that makes things from garbage.”
The homeowner initially called in the complaint describing the man in revealing attire as “a homeless male on his property building a shed and throwing chairs,” according to the TC Palm.
The arrest report went on to indicate that officers encountered a man who had “no shirt, shorts, and [was] covered in sand as if he was just at the beach.”
At the time of his arrest, officers say they were unable to identify him and he refused to give them his name. After transporting him to the county jail, a scan of his fingerprints revealed he was Blankin.
He is expected to face criminal charges including obstruction without violence and giving a false name.
