Naked man arrested for sneaking into Ventura backyard to use hot tub
A naked man was arrested after trying to sneak into a backyard in Ventura to use a hot tub, according to police.

VENTURA, Calif. -- A California man was arrested Tuesday after trespassing onto another man's property to use the backyard Jacuzzi while naked.

Authorities said the incident happened around 8:28 p.m. in the 1800 block of Channel Drive.

A homeowner said he heard noises in his backyard. When he went outside, he saw the suspect in his Jacuzzi.

The suspect, later identified as 47-year-old Travis Jones, quickly ran out of the backyard and jumped onto the roof of a neighboring house.

"He asked my husband not to call the police on him. He just kind of leisurely got out and walked down our side yard and went to the neighbor's house, hopped on their camper and hopped on the roof," the homeowner's wife Maggie Mahlstedt said. "I think he was trying to hide, but it's kind of hard to hide a naked white guy in the middle of the night."

"He climbed up the ladder and onto the roof and he's standing up there with his antics," neighbor Hans Walter explained.

The homeowner called police who responded and quickly located Jones on the roof.

He was taken into custody and arrested on suspicion of prowling, being under the influence of a controlled substance and a parole violation.
