Officers have arrested a drunk male after he was spotted ‘rubbing his genitals’ on a police vehicle.
Aroused by the sight of a police vehicle, the male targetted a Surrey Police car in Staines on Saturday night (October 17th) as officers were away from the car dealing with an unrelated matter.
In a public post that was shared on the Spelthorne Beat Facebook page, officers said that the male “thought that it would be rather funny to rub his genitals on the handle”.
But as the male started to stroke the marked unit with his genitalia, officers returned to their car and caught him in the act. He was arrested and had to spend the night in a cell.
Officers also made him wash their police car, with particular attention on the door handles, as a part of his conditional caution.
The Facebook post said:
“Police had an unusual incident last night in Staines town centre.
“Whilst responding to an unrelated matter an intoxicated gentleman thought it would be rather funny to rub his genitals on the handle of a marked police vehicle.
“Wasn’t so funny when he was arrested and spent the night in the police cell and on top of that as part of his conditional caution he had to wash said police car before leaving!”
Social media users were quick to support the police for making the male wash their police vehicle as a part of his punishment, and many others called for the body-worn footage of the incident to be released.
