Crime Corner: Man arrested after being found nude in neighbor’s truck

Man found nude in neighbor’s truck

A Pahrump man was arrested and charged earlier this month after being found in his neighbor’s truck nude.

Christopher Badia, 36, was taken into custody on May 4 and charged with indecent exposure and being under the influence of a controlled substance, according to the Nye County Sheriff’s Office.

Police were called to the scene on the 2200 block of Carson Lane with reports of a man being found naked sitting in a truck that did not belong to him.

When deputies arrived, they discovered Badia laying on the driver’s seat of his neighbor’s truck allegedly completely undressed with his penis exposed.

Police found him to be unresponsive, with bloodshot eyes, dilated pupils and roving eye movements.

He wasn’t moving and was silent so the responding deputy called Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue for a possible drug overdose situation.

During his transport to Desert View Hospital, he was administered Narcan, a medication that counteracts the effects of controlled substances.

After being given Narcan, Badia became more responsive and allegedly said he had used ecstasy and smoked marijuana the night prior, according to police.

Badia was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Nye County Detention Center. The sheriff’s office discovered that he had a prior incident involving indecent exposure in January 1999.

After being booked into the detention center and placed into a housing unit Badia allegedly tried to fight another inmate. Jail surveillance footage allegedly showed Badia approach an inmate in an aggressive manner, pushing him in the right shoulder in the process. Badia allegedly stated to the inmate, “You have a problem with me,” the arrest report states.

After several orders to get on the ground by deputies, Badia finally complied and was rebooked with an added charge of battery by prisoner.

The Nye County District Attorney filed formal charges against Badia on May 9 for the three counts.
