Naked Man Brandishing Leaf Blower Terrorizes Neighbors

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Massachusetts homeowner was arrested Monday for open and gross lewdness after passing motorists spotted him--leaf blower in hand--doing yard work in the nude, according to cops.


As Richard Capra, 69, worked on the curb appeal of his Shrewsbury home, several vehicles were slowing down taking photographs, according to the Shrewsbury Police Department."

The Smoking Gun

According to the arresting officers Capra was intoxicated and belligerent, it`s a good thing he was brandishing a leaf blower and not a weed whacker.

I have a neighbor who wakes me up at least twice a month with his leaf blower, if he used his ungodly contraption at a civilized hour I could care less if he was as naked as a newborn baby.

Capra is unclear on the concept of " curb appeal "; a decrepit 69-year-old man standing naked in front of his house isn`t going to enhance the curb appeal.

Capra was arrested on a misdemeanor charge; unfortunately he`s free now on bail.
