Brian Blake Bienvenu was arrested twice in just over 12 hours ¿ once for driving around naked and the second time for stealing a motorcycle while shirtless, according to arrest reports.
The 24-year-old Delray Beach man's half-day arrest binge began at about 2:20 a.m., when he parked a car near the entrance to the Highland Beach Club and got out buck naked, police said.
A Highland Beach police officer showed up after the security officer watched the nude Bienvenu park his Acura and then try to open the locked gatehouse door. Bienvenu climbed the metal gate and hid in the hedges, an arrest report said.
The officer noted in the arrest report that Bienvenu appeared to be drunk or on drugs ¿ and that he admitted to smoking marijuana.
Bienvenu was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on an indecent exposure charge at 4:51 a.m. and released at 10:50 a.m.
Four hours later, at about 2:50 p.m., Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to Jet Aviation at 1515 Perimeter Road, at Palm Beach International Airport and not far from the jail.
A deputy who went to the scene was told by a 45-year-old man that the man's 2003 Honda motorcycle had just been stolen by a shirtless man. The man headed west, the victim said.
The deputy caught up with the man, later identified as Bienvenu, and followed him until he drove the stolen motorcycle straight into a dead end at the Sheriff's Office aviation unit, deputies said.
Bievenu told the deputy that he took the motorcycle and was wearing clothes found in the bike's saddlebag, deputies said.
Bienvenu was taken back to the jail. He faces a charge of grand theft of motor vehicle charge and remained in custody Friday in lieu of a $6,000 bond.
