NORTH PHILADELPHIA – Monday morning in north Philly was crisp to say the least. 38 degrees but it felt like 31, with a humidity measured at 68%. A wind blew from the WSW at a gentle 9 mph. It was a morning like any other, until police say a 34-year-old man crashed a car into Crown Fried Chicken, stepped out, disrobed and promptly began yelling at the corner of 5th and Lehigh.
Below is the full statement issued by police:
On January 27, 2014, at approximately 10:30 am, police responded to 500 West Lehigh Avenue for an auto accident. Upon their arrival officers observed a vehicle on the curbside of the southwest corner of 5th & Lehigh Avenue. The male operator was seated in the driver’s seat of a 2007 Silver Camry with no shirt on. The male was asked to step out of the vehicle and when he, did the male was unable to stand on his own. His clothes were torn off and he was unable to respond to police questions. Witnesses to the accident stated that the male was operating his vehicle west on Lehigh Avenue and then veered across the intersection at 5th Street and drove on to the curb hitting a fixed object. After the accident, the male operator exited the vehicle and began removing his clothing and yelling. He then attempted to drive off; however, someone was able to remove the keys and hold them until police arrived. The operator was identified as 34 year old ######### from Pennsauken, New Jersey. He was charged with Driving Under the Influence; no injuries reported.
Although no mention of self pleasure was mentioned by police, the onlooker who shot the video below, told Phillymag.com “Oh, he was most definitely making himself feel happy.”
The crash occurred just 400 feet from an elementary school.
Police charged the New Jersey man with DUI but in terms of any public lewdness charge, he got off.
