DAYTON – A man was arrested in Dayton on Tuesday after a witness called police and said he attempted to have sex with a van.

According to WDTN, officers were called to the 700 block of St. Nicholas Street on Tuesday night when a neighbor called about a man pulling his pants down and swinging on a stop sign.

Michael Henson was taken into custody when police arrived and according to a police report, he appeared to be intoxicated.

He was only wearing shorts and shoes when officers found him.

When officers spoke with the witness who called 911, she told them that she saw him pull his shorts down and attempt to have sex with the front grill of a parked van.

He later passed out in a nearby yard, that’s when she called police.

He was charged with two counts of public indecency and is currently being held in the Montgomery County Jail.
