BROOKFIELD, Wis., Aug. 3 (UPI) -- Wisconsin police said a man caught driving a stolen vehicle is also facing charges for allegedly sunbathing nude in a stranger's yard chair.

Police said Derek Knight, 20, of Brookfield, was arrested at 1:30 a.m. Friday after driving to a condominium complex in a car that had been reported stolen, Patch.com reported Wednesday.

Officers said Knight was previously arrested June 29 after a woman reported he was sunbathing nude in a chair near her front door and refused to leave. Police arrived to find Knight wearing only a bandanna wrapped around his face and a pair of sunglasses.

Knight told police he had walked nude from his home to the woman's residence.

Police said Knight had been released on bond earlier June 29 from an arrest stemming from allegations he stole a car from the Town Hall parking lot June 27 and smoked hashish inside the vehicle.

Knight is facing charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, disorderly conduct, operating a vehicle without owner's consent, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of bail jumping. His bail was set at $1,500.
