According to an Richmond County Sheriff’s incident report, deputies attempted to initiate a traffic stop after noticing the man speeding through Harrisburg about 11:30 a.m.

The driver, Kevin Dale Price, finally came to a stop on Montrose Street. When deputies approached the vehicle, they discovered Price had his pants pulled down around his ankles and was exposed. Deputies later uncovered a piece of unsmoked crack cocaine in a pipe in his front pants pocket.

Price was charged with obstruction of a law enforcement officer, possession of a controlled substance and public indecency.

I was expecting a picture of a young fellow who had used his pants holding hand to swat a bee.

Is being in your car

Is being in your car considered "in public?" It seems you ought to be able to have your pants down in your own car!

He may have been doing some

He may have been doing some "open air advertising". With a hairdo like that it certainly makes one wonder what kind of lifestyle he leads.

Public indecency? That's a bit much. He was in his moving vehicle.

If this is his mug shot, he doesn't appear to grasp the significance of the whole situation. Looks like he's posing for his cruise photo.

I guess it depends on state

I guess it depends on state laws. Is your vehicle an extension of your house when it comes to gun laws. If so, pants laws?

Then we get into

Then we get into discrimination. Women can't ride around without their clothes on because their nudity is visible through car windows. But men, on the other hand, have an advantage when it comes to their exposure.

I would say no, but I'm not a legal adviser. We have neighbors who skinny dip in their pool in their backyard? Is that illegal? They have a privancy fence, but being up the hill from them......

I've heard that women will show themselves to drivers of larger vehicles at times, just for fun. (It never happened to me)

What a world. A man in his

What a world. A man in his own car with his pants down is arrested (which no one could see), but a man dropping his pants while everyone could see him, while he was trespassing on private property, was not arrested. I guess different people are held to different standards.

According to this report no

According to this report no one knew his pants were down until he was stopped by and approached by police. Let's keep the charges right.

He had his junk in his hand,

He had his junk in his hand, not just exposed. And would you feel that it was not proper to charge him with public indecency if you and your child rode beside him in a truck or SUV and saw it? You do not have the same expectation of privacy in a car as you do in your home. If you are in your car on a public road or in a public area (ie parking lot, rest stop, etc) it is not only possible, but likely that someone will walk by or drive by your vehicle and be able to see in. Remember those things called windows? You can see THROUGH them.

You are correct on all counts

You are correct on all counts "jackrussell"!! One has to wonder what he might have done next considering what he was already doing, and who he may have chosen to involve. It is a huge blessing that he was caught when he was...on drugs and wandering around in his car!! Good job on making the stop!!
