Police arrested a man on complaints of public indecency and public drunkenness after several people called 911 to report someone walking around southwest Oklahoma City with no pants on, according to a police report released Friday.
Ronnie Lee McBride, 50, was arrested about 7:45 p.m. March 31 in the 3700 block of N Pennsylvania Avenue. According to the report, an officer who responded to the 911 calls was flagged down by a witness who said he saw a drunken man walking around without pants on asking people for money.
The witness pointed police in the direction the man was walking. The officer found McBride pulling up his pants.
“I did see (McBride) naked, but it did not appear to me it was sexual in nature,” the officer wrote in the report. “It just appeared that he was so drunk and too ignorant to keep his pants up properly.”
McBride could not be reached for comment.
The report described McBride as a transient and listed several previous encounters the officer had with the man, most of them involving drunkenness. The officer said he decided to take McBride to jail instead of the city's detox center because he made numerous physical threats toward the officer while in the back seat of his patrol car.
