Nashville police report that a man was arrested after exhibiting bizarre behavior outside a bar where he pretended to beg on all fours like a dog and then tried to look up the skirts of women walking by.
According to Fox 17, officers arrested Mark Lutz, 55, after they were called about a strange man “bothering people and attempting to look up ladies skirts” outside a local Tin Roof tavern.
Security personnel at the bar said they warned Lutz that his behavior outside the establishment was a disruption and they chased him away several times for being physically offensive to female patrons and passersby. The management of the bar eventually called police when the disruptive behavior persisted.
The suspect had run off ahead of the arrival of police but officers later found Lutz several blocks away after calls about a man “exhibiting strange behavior” were made.
In a police report, officers said they encountered Lutz at the intersection of 4th Avenue and Broadway, “on his knees begging like a dog crawling around and attempting to look up ladies skirts.”
The man was arrested and charged with Disorderly Conduct and Public Intoxication.
There is no word if illegal drugs played a part in Lutz’s behavior, but it isn’t the first time someone has gotten his canine on in public.
Not long ago, a Texan named Terrence Loyd, 32, was arrested in Mansfield, Louisiana, for acting like a dog while high. The suspect later pleaded guilty to possession of illegal drugs and went to jail.
Without alcohol or drugs, Pittsburgh resident Gary Matthews insists that he is really a dog named “Boomer” and insists he wants to be accepted for his doggy lifestyle. Which bathroom “Boomer” would use at Target is not known.
