Naked On The Roof In Vegas

guest blog by Nila Ridings

“What happens in Vegas stays…” Nope, not this time.  
 
When you’re naked, throwing roof tiles at the cops, and breaking out windows in the Desert Shores Homeowners Association your story ain’t stayin’ in Vegas.  No secrets kept secret on Secret Harbour Court this time.
 
It’s unknown if this guy just couldn’t take the pressure of living in the HOA any longer. Or, if he was planning to announce his candidacy for the HOA board in a flashy way.  But he grabbed a knife and scaled a wall to a roof top.
 
Who knows what set him off?  Maybe they fined him and put a lien on his house for wearing the wrong color underwear?  
 
Causing his neighbors and business partners in the non-profit HOA to remain in lock-down for five hours will probably get him the notorious “MOVE” screams at the May board meeting!
 
Looks like just another day of HOA insanity to me!
 
Next.

    Nothing in the story says he was a resident of Desert Shores. According to the video, the police had been “been in pursuit of that man since last night”. Desert Shores is where the chase ended, not began.

    There’s enough “HOA insanity” out there that needs to be exposed. There is no need to attribute every crazy thing that happens in a neighborhood governed by an H.O.A. corporation to H.O.A. corporations.

    Nothing in the story that I read said he wasn’t a resident of Desert Shores or that they didn’t start chasing him in Desert Shores.

    This happened inside an HOA and affected the residents of Desert Shores so it’s an HOA insanity story…one of a kind possibly, hopefully, but it’s an HOA story.

    The only time speculation isn’t acceptable is in a court of law which this website is not.
