Kansan Faces Autoerotic Criminal Rap

Cops: "Oblivious" suspect, 24, sought car tryst

MAY 3--An intoxicated Kansas man may face criminal charges after he was found this week attempting to have sex with the tailpipe of a parked automobile.

Police in Newton, a city 25 miles north of Wichita, responded late Tuesday night to a 911 call about a naked man beneath an automobile. The 24-year-old suspect, cops discovered, was trying to place his penis into the tailpipe of the vehicle, which was parked outside an apartment complex.

The naked man was “oblivious” when contacted by cops, said Lieutenant Scott Powell of the Newton Police Department. Despite the presence of officers, the suspect continued to try and have sex with the tailpipe, said Powell, who added that the man was eventually tased and taken into custody.

Due to his impairment, the suspect was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The man’s blood alcohol content was measured at .35, more than four times the .08  legal limit. Powell told TSG that the suspect has had previous contacts with the Newton police.

Following the bizarre incident, police sent the local prosecutor a report recommending the man be charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, a misdemeanor.

Since a charging decision has not been made, police have declined to identify the suspect.
