COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- Deputies have filed charges against a man that was rescued while nude and acting erratically on the roof of a building under construction Tuesday night.

38-year-old George Fahmy is facing felony charges of criminal mischief, trespass on construction site, and attempted burglary causing damage.  He already had an active warrant out of Palm Beach County for a battery charge.

According to a Collier County Sheriff's Office arrest report, shortly before 8 p.m Tuesday, a resident reported seeing a man acting suspiciously in the area of Immokalee Road near Collier Boulevard.

Arriving deputies found a man, later identified as Fahmy, climbing onto the roof of a Goodwill business under construction, while wearing "a pair of sneakers and nothing else on his body."

Due to his disorientated behavior, fire and helicopter crews were called to the scene to help detain him, and were able to locate Fahmy hiding in an air unit, which was found to be damaged.

Fahmy was safely detained and lowered off the roof and taken for medical treatment.  After being medically cleared, he was taken to the Naples Jail Center.

He later told investigators that earlier that evening he was at Pelican Larry's, where he consumed two drinks, but didn't remember anything after that.
