Ottawa man named ‘Popadick’ arrested for indecent exposure
National Post ^ | April 29, 2014 | Tristin Hopper

Posted on 04/30/2014 1:38:48 PM PDT by Loyalist

An alleged flasher with the ill-fated name of “Popadick” was arrested Tuesday at a riverside Ottawa park.

Since April 14th, Ottawa Police had been receiving reports of a balding white male exposing himself at Mooney’s Bay Park, a Rideau River park just north of the Ottawa International Airport.

On Tuesday at around 9 a.m., police were again alerted by reports of the man exposing his genitalia to strangers along a park pathway.

Officers in the area were dispatched to the park, where they arrested Donald Popadick, 62. Charged with Indecent Act and Mischief, he is due for a Wednesday court appearance.

Fittingly, news of Thursday’s arrest was reporter on Twitter by Ottawa Police Sgt. Iain Pidcock.

If he isn't a hardened criminal, the evidence won't stand up in court.

After four minutes, take him to gaol. After four hours, take him to emergency. After four days, it’s a permanent condition... Sign him up for political office.

Yes, "Magic" Johnson...which is why he wasn't at the Clippers game on Tuesday.

Sounds like he has a great defense. His friend yelled to him, “Hey, Popadick!” So he did.

The name itself probably carried some psychological damage.

Social psychologists actually have a term for it, nominative determinism. Although "determinism" is a bit too strong a word for the influence on personality a name can bring.

“Nominative” is one of those words that I’ve not only never heard of, I can’t even understand the definition of it. But I understand year meaning—if you’re called something long enough, it might begin to influence your behavior.
