A man was arrested in Des Moines, Iowa, for allegedly punching a cop, but the police report also contained an odd tidbit: the man was “chewing on a condom” when he attacked.

On Sunday, Brian Jerome White, 25, of Des Moines, was reported as trespassing in the MidAmerican Jet Center hangar at the Des Moines International Airport. The police were quickly called.

According to the Des Moines Register, when police arrived at about 7:45 PM, they discovered White “chewing on a condom” and flipping through a magazine in the lobby of the Elliott Aviation building.

Naturally, the trespasser was uncooperative with police and reportedly punched one of the officers after attempting to open the door of a police car as police were patting him down.

White was arrested for assault causing injury to a police officer. He was also charged with interference with official acts and trespassing. White is housed at the Polk County Jail on a $4,300 bond.
