SACRAMENTO, Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Police in California said they arrested a nude man who walked into a welding shop while apparently on methamphetamine.

Sacramento police said they received a call around 12:30 p.m. Saturday about a nude man rambling incoherently at the Juliesse Avenue welding shop, KOVR-TV, Sacramento, reported Tuesday.

Police said Jose Ayala was standing outside the shop when they arrived and struggled with them briefly before being taken into custody. They said Ayala is believed to have been high on methamphetamine at the time.

Chris Johnson, the owner of the shop, said the man initially asked for a job.

"I turn around and I'm like 'whoa!'" Johnson said. "He said something about he was looking for work, and he was good with his hands. I didn't know why a naked dude would be in my shop."
