Area Man Caught Masturbating While Driving
JOLIET, ILL. -- The streets of Joliet are safer tonight after a man accused of exposing himself to a woman while driving was arrested. At around 8 a.m. on Friday, a local woman walking her dog was surprised when a man in a Ford Taurus pulled up on the woman and the man informed her of his appreciation of her derriere by exclaiming from his car, “Yo, you got a fat a**.” It was at this time that the woman had noticed that the man, 24-year-old Joseph Pinson, had exposed himself and was masturbating. Soon after, Pinson decided the show was over and drove off. The woman was able to write down his license plate number and informed the police of what she had seen. Pinson was reportedly found at his Herkimer St. house by police officers. He was taken into Joliet Police custody where he was charged with public indecency and was released on a recognizance bond. It is unclear what the motivation for this incident was or whether Pinson and the dog walker knew each other.
