CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- 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.

The News-Press reports 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.

Bieniek was released Sunday on $26,500 bond and faces two charges of burglary and charges of resisting arrest, larceny and criminal mischief. It's unclear if he's retained an attorney.
