Skip to comments.Bound, naked in a Subaru: Valentine's Day role-playing ends badly
Posted on 02/15/2012 9:38:49 AM PST by Theoria
It was Valentine's Day in Portlandia -- should anyone have been upset about a little friendly bondage action in the back of a Subaru?
Well, yes. The Portland Police Bureau was plenty upset, and the lovers, identified as Nikolas Harbar, 31, and Stephanie Pelzner, 26, are under arrest on charges of disorderly conduct in the second degree.
Portland may be a city that has always prided itself on its eccentricities, but police said the red alert that went out when Pelzner was glimpsed bound and naked in the back of the car was a Valentine too far.
It began shortly after noon on Tuesday, when someone at the New Seasons Market in north Portland reported that they had seen a naked female with duct tape on her mouth tied up in the back of a blue Subaru Legacy.
The man driving the car had told the witness they "were just having some fun," police said in their report, but the woman in the back of the car "seemed hazy."
The witness phoned in the license plate to the car, and the search was on.
Authorities in Washington state were alerted, in case the car traveled north across the state line on Interstate 5. Portland police began combing the city's streets, while a patrol car zeroed in on the address where the car was registered.

Looks like Michelle Trachtenberg.

LOL! “Libtards in Luuuuuuuv”.
If they’d been gay they wouldn’t have been booked into the county jail. They would’ve received an apology from the Mayor and slobbering wet kisses from the police department....
p.s., I’d duct tape her....
But really ... WTF were they thinking?
Any normal person is going to look at that scene and think "violent crime".
p.p.s., but he’s guilty as hell....
“I long for the touch of your lips dear/but more for the touch of your whips dear/fracture my spine and swear that you’re mine/ and be my bondage Valentine’’.
Poor reporting, no list of charges.
She's another liberal being kept under control.
Sounds like more of a Curb Your Enthusiasm episode than a Portlandia.
It actually hasn't.
Portland has been around for 160 years, but it didn't really get a reputation for being "alternative" or "weird" or "edgy" until the explosive growth in its population over the past twenty years.
In the early 90s it became a cheaper, more livable alternative to San Francisco and Seattle for internet and consulting companies. Between 1990 and today its population shot up from 350K to over 600K, a roughly 60% increase.
The too-well-documented Seattle boom of the 90s increased Seattle's population less than 20% in comparison.
Portland has seen an influx of almost 200,000 white, college-educated, wealthy hipsters in the past 15 years, which explains its current reputation for self-congratulatory eccentricity.
I didn’t know there were any Amish in Portland.
She looks like she could be Casey Anthony's sister!
Decidedly NOT GUILTY.
****Police say they had no way of knowing they weren’t looking for a potential murder victim.
“The concern is their actions created a pretty substantial public alarm, to the point where you have a 911 caller saying she’s concerned about this person tied up naked in the back of a car,” Lt. Robert King, bureau spokesman, told the Los Angeles Times.****
Ended badly? She was ‘hazy’? Whose bright idea was this Valentine stupidity? A really good cover for murder by misadventure.
Think - Josh Powell, Drew Peterson, Scott Peterson, Ted Bundy, Jason Young and dozens of other men who disposed of their wives and lovers.
She may still not realize how close she was to a ‘disappearing’.
According to her Myspace acct she list herself as bisexual.
