Is it a civil right or a criminal wrong to be naked in your home where you can be seen through a window? 29-year-old Eric Williamson has been charged with indecent exposure. He told another news station that he was in the buff Monday morning at 5:30am making coffee in his kitchen and he didn't know anyone could see him.

But Fairfax County police say a mother walking her 7-year-old son to a school bus stopped complained that this happend at 8:30am. Mary Ann Jennings of the Fairfax County Police Department said, "she says she heard a noise, looked over, and saw a naked man standing in the open doorway and that she quickly got on the sidewalk and started to pass by the house and once again saw the same naked man in one of the front windows."

Eric Williamson is an underwater construction diver. The company he works for rents this house. One of his roommates tells us Williamson was fired from his job for missing work on Friday. Monday morning, the roommate says, Williamson was acting strangely.

The roommate says "we wake up to Eric running around the house with nothing but a workhat on, butt naked, of course because he was drunk." Eric Williamson is no longer in the area but spoke with me by phone.

Eric says "at that time I was upstairs, downstairs without clothes on for several hours. And then I put some pants on. If she was walking down the road and said she saw me naked, it's a good possibility but I don't have a timeframe." Fairfax County detectives are canvassing the neighborhood, handing out fliers asking if anyone knows about similiar incidents.
