At 4:00 am on Friday, April 23rd Lodi, CA police found themselves faced with a man wearing only an Oakland Raiders jacket, lacey g-string panties, socks and scrunchie around his genitals. The man, Shawn Batie (42) appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamines. I certainly hope he was under the influence of something… and doesn’t make a habit of running around half naked and talking to himself, but these days you just never know.
Anyhow, when officers arrived Batie was standing in the dirt next to a cemetery with a flashlight and yelling into the dark, wearing the above mentioned attire. The officers said Batie was very jittery and his pupils were dilated. He was taken in under suspicion of being under the influence, which was confirmed at the jail. He was also found to be a parolee at large.
When questioned regarding the where-a-bouts of his pants, he said “they must have been taken.” Really…. surely that was the case! How these officers remained composed dealing with this asswipe is beyond me, they are better people than me.
Once in his cell, he promptly defecated and painted a self portrait on the walls, using his shit. When given towels to clean up his artwork, he instead opted to clog the toilet. He was then moved to a safety cell.
Batie was arrested for being under the influence of narcotics and being a parolee at large.
