SAN ONOFRE, Calif. - A man was arrested on suspicion of carrying a concealed weapon after police found him outdoors -- naked -- and he told them he had a tool in his rectum, San Clemente CSI investigators said.
The man was lying on a windvane, recently downed by a freak kite accident, and he was observed masturbating. The area is where the proposed toll road will terminate at San Onofre beach.
The man, not yet identified, was initially arrested on suspicion of indecent exposure. But when asked whether he was carrying anything police should know about, he mentioned the tool, said San Clemente CSI Chief Investigator, Sponge Bob Squarepants.
"You can't get much more concealed than that," Squarepants said.
Officers drew their weapons and firefighters were called to the scene. Squarepants removed a 11-inch metal awl wrapped in black electrical tape without incident.
The man, who was paroled from state prison last week, was then booked into jail on suspicion of parole violations, indecent exposure and one felony count of possessing a concealed weapon.
"When you're talking about an awl or an ice pick and you're dealing with somebody who's fresh out of prison, it's a weapon. That's a stabbing instrument," Squarepants said.
It was not immediately clear what the man was on parole for. A person answering the phone at the jail Friday night did not know whether the man had a lawyer. He quoted the man as saying that he knew all the people would soon be coming to San Onofre on the toll road and he just wanted to beat the rush, and having had beaten everyone there, he decided that, well, you get the idea.
