WASHINGTON (Circa) — Neighbors in Stuart, Florida, are irritated with their fellow resident who has been doing yard work in the nude.

"I came out Sunday night to put the trash out, and I look over and he is bent over, winding up his hose, and I'm like that is my view of the neighborhood,” Melissa Ny, a neighbor, told WPBF-TV. "He works on his car, and he does it naked and everyone has called the police, he is just out there doing his yard work, whatever he needs to do outside, naked."

Another neighbor believes the man should have some respect for children who live in the area.

"Kids catch the bus here. It’s wrong," neighbor Charlie Estes told WPBF-TV.

But police say they can't do anything about it. As long as the man isn't touching himself inappropriately, police can't tell the man to put his clothes on because he is on his own property.

"I have seen these people stand on their front step, buck naked, both of them, and talk to a police officer, sheriff department. The sheriff's department told me to turn my head," Estes said.

WPBF-TV asked for an interview with the man, but he declined because he says he is a very private person.
