Naked man driving with electrical wires attached to penis arrested

Police say Kurt Jenkins drove slowly through neighborhood with children

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. – A South Florida man was arrested on Halloween after he was driving naked through a Boynton Beach neighborhood with electrical wires protruding from his penis, police said.

Kurt Jenkins, 56, faces charges of lewd and lascivious exhibition, exposure of sexual organs and resisting a law enforcement officer without violence.

According to a Boynton Beach police report, a witness called police to complain of a naked man who was driving slowly through the neighborhood. The witness said the naked man, later identified as Jenkins, pulled up alongside him and gestured for him to look at Jenkins' groin area.

"(The witness) observed Jenkins was completely naked and saw an electronic device with wires, which was attached to Jenkins' penis," the police report said.

According to the report, the witness said Jenkins opened the passenger door and asked him to get inside. The witness declined but took a photograph of Jenkins naked behind the wheel.

Police said Jenkins made several passes through the neighborhood, slowing down -- "almost to a complete stop" -- as several children from a nearby school were dropped off.

When police arrived and ordered Jenkins to get on the ground, he refused, Officer Antonio Donnino wrote in his report. Officers then grabbed Jenkins and took him to the ground, handcuffing him with his hands behind his back, the report said.

Jenkins was being held at a Palm Beach County jail. He was expected to appear in bond court Wednesday morning.
