A man was arrested after being found naked inside a Masonic Lodge in west Nashville.
Officers were called to the Mason Lodge on Charlotte Avenue on Saturday after witnesses saw a man walk up to the front door, strike it with a large wooden stick, and then enter the building.
Officers arrived to find the front door window broken, and called in K-9s to search the building. A K-9 then found the man in the bathroom without any clothes. At first, officers said he resisted arrest, but later was taken into custody.
Police said the man, later identified as 41-year-old Dondrick Lee Perkins, had entered the building fully clothed, and were unsure why he took off his clothes. He had no affiliation with the Masons.
Officers said he also had three wooden practice swords in his possession.
Perkins was charged with burglary and resisting arrest. His bond was set at $6,500.
