OAKDALE, LA (KPLC) - An Oakdale man is under arrest after exposing himself to passing motorists at the intersection of US 165 and La. 10 East, parish authorities say.

Christopher Mitchell told authorities that he smoked “Wet,” which is marijuana mixed with embalming fluid, the day of the incident, according to a news release from Allen Parish Sheriff Doug Hebert.

Hebert says Allen Parish deputies began investigating on Saturday, Oct. 27, after receiving a report that two days earlier, on Thursday, Oct. 25, a man was walking nude at the intersection of US 165 and La. 10 East inside the city limits of Oakdale.

Deputies obtained a video of the incident, in which the man is scene with his clothes around his ankles, performing sexual acts on himself as vehicles passed by.

When arrested at his residence on Oct. 29, Mitchell admitted to smoking “Wet” on the day of the incident.

Mitchell was booked into the Allen Parish Jail on one count of obscenity.
