MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – Prowling in a stranger’s front lawn stark naked puts a man from Calico Rock behind bars, Tuesday night.
Sheriff John Montgomery says deputies were called to Kingwood Boulevard, near Lake Norfork, with a report that a man without clothes was attempting to break into a woman’s house.
When police arrived, they found 31-year-old David Burkhart laying under a bush in his birthday suit.
Deputies say they also found window screens that had been taken from the side of the house, as well as a misplaced chair behind the home. According to the police report, Burkhart told investigators he was intoxicated, disoriented, and had been at a public campsite earlier that night.
He was arrested without incident and has been charged with felony counts of burglary, disorderly conduct, and public intoxication. Burkhart is out of jail on a bond of 15–thousand dollars.
