UPD: A-State student reports lost driver exposed himself

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - An A-State student received a lesson in anatomy after he said a man drove up to him, asking for directions, with his pants pulled down.

The student told university police Aug. 30 that he was walking along Aggie Road when an older gray two-door truck drove up.

The driver, described as an older white male, asked for directions to Flint Street.

The student told police the man "had his penis out, exposed, and was peeing in a red pail."

According to the initial incident report, the suspect apologized to the student and said "he had kidney problems and had been urinating on himself all day and just needed directions."

The student told the man he was from out of town and could not help him, then walked away. The victim said he last saw the driver heading east on Aggie.

Officer Tracy Fleetwood found a Ford pickup truck matching the suspect's vehicle in a parking lot and stopped it.

Fleetwood explained the reason for the stop and the man consented to a search of the truck.

The officer reported finding numerous cups, but no red pail.

After taking a photo of the truck and the driver, Fleetwood released the man.

The officer then showed the photographs to the alleged victim who said he believed it was the same man who had stopped him, but he was not "100 percent sure on anything because he was caught off guard and was just trying to get away."

However, after reviewing surveillance video of the man's truck which was parked from 7:30 a.m. until 12:17 p.m., Fleetwood did not believe it was the same truck.
