Florida nudists divide neighborhood

U.S. & World

(WPTV/NBC News) A Florida man could face charges after doing chores outside of his Stuart home while naked.

Some people who live nearby say they have called to report the behavior to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, but the man continues to perform yard work exposed.

“Walks around outside, he don’t care. He stands on his back porch,” says neighbor Charlie Estes. 

Estes said this has gone on for several years.

“As the way the law is worded now it’s legal for a man to walk around in his yard buck naked,” Estes says.

However, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office said after talking to the chief assistant state attorney on Wednesday they believe there are enough elements to charge the man if he continues with the behavior. 

Meanwhile, there’s another group of neighbors who feel the man is being shown in the wrong light. 

“Literally they are the nicest people you’ll ever meet. They would give you their clothes if they had them on to give them to you,” says neighbor Aimee Canterbury.
