It's always best to be careful when operating a chainsaw, but you may want to avoid it outright when using one naked. Just ask Lindsay Medd Stevens, 46, of Knoxville, TN.

Stevens was arrested for indecent exposure after a witness was scarred for life by the image of him cutting down a tree completely naked. A sheriff's deputy experienced the same horror, which sent Stevens running inside for cover. Neighbors says this is business as usual for Stevens, saying that it's so common, it's "become the neighborhood joke."

Stevens has been known to swim and ride his lawn mower naked, neither of which are pleasant images. He was released on $750 bond, and will hopefully keep his clothes on in public. Think of the children.
