    Monroe County Sheriff's Office

    Authorities say a naked drunk Florida man wanted to know if his .45-caliber gun and shotgun worked, so he fired them into the air.

    Neighbors heard the gunfire Tuesday and called the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

    Spokeswoman Becky Herrin said in a news release that arriving deputies found 66-year-old Roger Scheid inside the home.

    Herrin said Scheid was "naked and appeared to be intoxicated."
