Naked cowboy gets comfy in stranger’s home

JOHNS CREEK, Atlanta (CNN/WSB) — A naked cowboy made himself way too comfortable in one neighborhood in the Atlanta area.

Now, he faces nearly a dozen charges.

“He was completely naked,” said Johns Creek City Councilwoman Cori Davenport. “He had a cowboy hat on.”

As surveillance cameras rolled outside Davenport’s house, police say 21-year-old Ashdon Gibbs walked into the home while Davenport and her daughter were inside.

“I heard her scream, and me and my housekeeper came to the foyer,” said Davenport. “And she said, ‘A naked man just came in the home.’”

When cops found the Decatur man up the street, they say he was wearing Bob Johnson’s clothes.

“He probably needed them,” said Johnson.

Johnson showed where police believe Gibbs broke a window before then making himself at home.

“He sat in the chair. He likes the Braves, so he went and had a good time watching the Braves, while he was drinking his beer,” said Johnson.

The urban cowboy apparently likes the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, cranking up the tunes on the family’s vintage jukebox.

Police say Gibbs told them the Johnsons were his parents.

“If he’s not 6’ 5’’ and blond, he’s not mine,” said Katy Johnson. “He called us ‘mom and dad,’ but we said, ‘No.'”

Once captured, dash cam video shows Gibbs telling detectives he was a U.S. Marshal who had bigger aspirations.

“I’m trying to be the president, but y’all won’t let me be,” said Gibbs.

“This is probably one of the more bizarre calls that I’ve encountered in my time in law enforcement,” said one of the police officers who dealt with Gibbs.

Gibbs remains in custody and faces a series of charges — including burglary, criminal trespassing and indecent exposure. He’s also charged with impersonating a police officer.
