Nude man armed with chainsaw arrested in East Knox County

KNOXVILLE — A 46-year-old Knox County man has been arrested after he was using a chainsaw in his yard to cut up a toppled tree while nude.

Lindsay Medd Stevens was arrested about 3:15 p.m. Wednesday at his Ellistown home at 7166 Wind Whisper Boulevard, according to records. Stevens is charged with indecent exposure. He was released from the Knox County Sheriff's Detention Facility after posting a $750 bond.

Knox County Sheriff's Office Deputy Scott Ritch said he approached the residence after a neighbor complained about the sight of Stevens swinging a chainsaw at the large downed tree while nude. Stevens is listed as 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 210 pounds.

"When I arrived at the complainant's residence, I saw arrestee standing behind the tree in his yard," Ritch wrote in his report.
