Cops: Nude Driver's Conduct distracting
CBS News ^

Posted on 09/05/2007 12:04:53 PM PDT by John Cena

AP) A naked man driving along the Indiana Toll Road was arrested and charged because his lewd conduct distracted other motorists, police said.

The 37-year-old Chicago man was traveling east to Ohio to visit his mother, police said. He was nude and had petroleum jelly on his hands when a state trooper pulled him over about 10 miles from the Ohio line Wednesday, police said.

The man, who told police he was comfortable driving in the nude, was charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure, punishable by up to a year in jail.

The trooper, Al Martinez, a four-year veteran of the Indiana State Police, said he walked up to the passenger side of the SUV and saw that the man had dropped a T-shirt across his midsection. Other motorists had called police about the driver, with several calls from truckers who could see into the front seat of the SUV.

Martinez made the man put his clothes back on before handcuffing him and putting him in the back of the squad car.

The man was released Thursday from the Steuben County Jail on $1,000 bond

I'll bet that trooper was mighty careful putting on the cuffs.

Because when you're going to visit mom, it's important to be in your birthday suit and have Vaseline on your hands.

Driving a car forces a woman's knees slightly apart and her skirt to ride up a bit...I've been told.

Getting oneself jerked off at speed... don't ask where your mind wanders when a woman gives you a bj while you're driving. Awk!

“A Shot In The Dark”, one of my favorite Peter Sellers movies.

I liked the scene where he is going to question a suspect, walks up to the door (where a group of people is attending an opera singing recital), hears what he thinks is a woman’s scream in trouble, backs up to crash the door, goes running full speed at the door, just as a butler opens the door, Sellers goes running across in front of the singer and audience, completely across the room and out a second floor open window and into a canal.

I thought I was gonna pee my pants from laughing so hard.

"He was nude and had petroleum jelly on his hands..."

This is a good example of what, in the practice of law, we call "circumstantial evidence".

I’m not a trucker, don’t play one on TV, nor did I stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but I do drive a larger vehicle, and when the vehicle you are in sits higher than the cars around you, without even trying you can see into the lower vehicles.

Speakin’ from personal, professional experience here:

When you’re up in the cab of a big-rig, there ain’t much you don’t see. I’ve never seen a totally naked wanker like this dude, but I’ve seen some things I’d rather not have...

They're looking for nekkid women, or a titty shot. They were greivously traumatized by this guy and called the PD to punish him for it. They were hunting for and expected nekkid women, and this guy ruined their day.
