An 83-year-old Arkansas woman was shocked to find a tree had crushed her home last weekend — and then had a second surprise when she witnessed a naked man emerging from the woods the next day. The bizarre display was caught by a news crew who were covering the aftermath of the Saturday night storm in Saline County.
Nathaniel KobaEva Halpain was being interviewed in her yard on Sunday with her partner, John Manassel, and telling how devastated she was to find a felled tree that basically cut her house in half. The woman said she had been at a friend’s house to watch a pay-per-view football game during the incident.
“Nothing bad like this has ever happened to me,” Halpain said. Then, as the cameras rolled, Halpain’s and Manassel’s eyes widened on seeing a young man in the buff walking out of the woods. “What is this out there that we got?” John asked. Halpain’s son, Jim, who had been watching the scene unfold, is heard on the video saying he doesn’t know the stark-naked stroller. He then called 911.
According to Saline County sheriff’s deputies, it was 22-year-old Nathaniel Koba, who was allegedly high on drugs when he decided to strip down and parade outside naked. Since Koba was in his birthday suit, it took authorities a while to confirm his identity. A sheriff’s deputy put on a pair of gloves before arresting him. Koba was charged with public intoxication and indecent exposure, and was being held at the Saline County Jail.
