Chastity Belt Bust

JUNE 9--A tipsy Tennessee man arrested last month for drunk driving told cops that he needed to retrieve a key from his automobile so that he would be able to unlock a “chastity belt that was attached to his penis,” according to court records.

In addition to the chastity belt, Curtiss Eidam, 35, was wearing a white skirt, "white and pink leggings," and black high heel shoes, a police report notes. The 5' 9", 230-pound Eidam also had a ribbon tied in his goatee, according to WYSH.

Eidam was busted at a DUI checkpoint outside Knoxville after failing a series of field sobriety tests. Eidam, who copped to drinking four or five shots in the hours before the bust, smelled of booze, was unsteady on his feet, and registered a .117 on a Breathalyzer test, investigators noted.

Upon being taken into custody, Eidam (seen above) told Sergeant Dennis Smith that “he would need a key from the vehicle he was operating.” Eidam, Smith added, then “went on to explain the key fit a chastity belt that was attached to his penis.”

Eidam told Smith that there were two keys for the chastity belt. One, he said, was on the key chain in his Toyota Tundra. The second key was on a necklace worn by Rebecka Alexander, Eidam’s girlfriend. Pictured at left, Alexander, 44, was in the car’s passenger seat and was “highly intoxicated,” according to a criminal complaint.

A second cop retrieved the key from Eidam’s vehicle and subsequently gave it to personnel at the Anderson County lockup. Sadly, the court filing does not chronicle how jailers handled Eidam’s chastity belt, nor is the device further described.

In addition to facing a drunk driving count, Eidam was also charged with possession of a handgun while under the influence (officers found a 9mm handgun in the Toyota’s center console).

Free on $6500 bond, Eidam is scheduled for a July 11 court appearance. An Army veteran, Eidam works as a registered nurse at a hospital in Oak Ridge, a city 25 miles west of Knoxville. (2 pages)
