    A Florida man who was found nude by deputies is facing charges after being accused of using a forklift and a hammer to wreak havoc before taking a shower at a plumbing business.

    Local news outlets report 24-year-old Joseph Michael Bieniek was confronted by an employee at United Plumbing on Friday.

    The employee told Lee County deputies he was working late in the warehouse and went to investigate a noise when he found Bieniek standing naked and clutching a hammer. The employee said Bieniek didn't threaten him.

    Surveillance video showed Bieniek causing destruction to the plumbing business and a neighboring business.
