A drunk man fell over a cliff and into a river while masturbating, police in Oregon said.
The Oregon City Police Department said that they arrested 31-year-old Ernest Michael Kirk on Monday, on felony charges of public lewdness and harassment after he was seen masturbating in Clackamette Park.
The incident unfolded on Saturday about 2:17 p.m., when the police received a call of a naked man masturbating in public view on the cliff edge of the Willamette River.
Officers located Kirk, who was wanted on a parole violation.
Police officers saw Kirk naked and sitting on the edge of the cliff about 75 feet below.
He was within a few feet of water, and appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance.
Kirk continued to masturbate in front of police officers on the scene for several minutes.
Police used a boat to reach Kirk, after he fell into the river. Kirk was taken to a Portland area hospital for a medical evaluation. When Kirk was released from the hospital, he was arrested.
