Baytown police: Naked man breaks water line in city building

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Baytown police say they arrested a naked man after he allegedly broke into the police department's community service building and broke a water line.

The arrest happened Saturday in the 200 block of West Defee after an off-duty police officer spotted water pouring out of the front of the building. The officer went inside to check it out and found the naked suspect, who's been identified as Jesus Lopez.

Lopez told authorities he got into the building through a second-story window, vandalized a kitchen area as well as another room. When he realized he couldn't get back out of the building, he tried to get into the ceiling and broke a water line.

Authorities say Lopez caused about $40,000 in damages.

The suspect was arrested on a charge of criminal trespassing and taken to a psychiatric center for some mental issues.
