HIGHLAND BEACH, Fla., May 19 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a man twice within a 12-hour period, once for driving his car naked and a second time for allegedly stealing a motorcycle.

Brian Blake Bienvenu, 24, of Delray Beach, Fla., began his alleged crime spree at 2:20 a.m. local time Thursday, when a security official at Highland Beach Club observed him parking his vehicle in the nude, police said.


Bienvenu tried to open the locked gate to the club, and when he couldn't, he climbed a fence and hid in some bushes, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.

Highland Beach, Fla., police arrested Bienvenu for indecent exposure and noted in the police report the man appeared to be drunk or on drugs. Bienvenu said he had smoked marijuana.

He was released at 10:50 a.m. local time.

About four hours later, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a report of a stolen motorcycle at Palm Beach International Airport, the Sun Sentinel reported.

A man there said his motorcycle was stolen by a man who was not wearing a shirt. Police caught up to a shirtless Bienvenu allegedly driving the motorcycle in question and arrested him.


Bienvenu faces a grand theft motor vehicle charge and was being held in lieu of $6,000 bond, police said.
