In today's economy, trading your nude photos for rent might seem like a good deal. But ask yourself: Do I really want to live with someone who is willing to collect my n00dz in lieu of actual rent? That's probably not going to end well.
According to CFNews13, Samuel Otero, 37, was arrested by Lake County Sheriff's deputies Tuesday on charges of stalking.
Otero and his male victim had come to an unusual agreement: Otero would let the guy stay for free in his house if the man posed for nude photos and videos. That worked out for a about a year, but the roommate decided to move out in August.
Otero, however, never stopped texting his old roomie, and apparently the infatuation got pretty heavy. So Otero taped the nude photos to the victim's grandmother's car. He also sent the photos to a co-worker and the man's girlfriend.
Police say that on Monday, Otero threatened to shoot the man and then himself if the two couldn't be together.
He was arrested Tuesday and released on $5,500 bond.
