Oakland carpenter nailed for working in his birthday suit
This dude probably could have gotten a ton of business if he advertised by word-of-mouth about his “services,” though this guy is on the too-pervy side of the fence for that. Heaven help this guy if he drops the wrong tool on his tool. (NBC11):
An unfinished bookcase and a day in jail has brought down Alameda County’s infamous nude carpenter.
Fifty-year-old Percy Honniball is vowing to work fully clothed from now on after being arrested and charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure. He is free on bail and is scheduled to return to court in a few weeks.
Honniball says he loves working in the buff because it gives him a better range of motion and makes him a more efficient worker. But an Oakland homeowner who hired him called police after discovering the contractor building a set of bookcases in the nude.
Honniball apologized and said he was simply behind on his work. He said this was his way of speeding the process.
It turns out he has a long history of run-ins with police. Officers have stopped him three times since 2000 for working in the nude or allegedly exposing himself to mail carriers.
Hat tip, Holly.
