In what is either a queer political gesture or holiday merriment went awry…a man has been arrested after exposing himself in front of the White House.
Five people were posing together for pictures Sunday at around 1:30 am near the north fence of the White House when a police officer saw more than he wanted from one of them.
The man, turning around to face the executive mansion, “proceeded to lower his pants and undergarment exposing his genital to plain view,” said the incident report by Washington police.
The suspect was arrested for indecent exposure – a misdemeanour – even though the police did not assign a motive.
It was unlikely that President Donald Trump or his family caught a glimpse of the flasher, though the incident came after Trump postponed a holiday trip to Florida due to a partial shutdown the US government over border security.
