I know Portland has a reputation for being a weird city, but this sounds more like Florida weird than Portland weird. Maybe Florida is contagious?
An officer approached Joey Vandervort, 19, just after 12:30 a.m. in the area of North Lombard St. and North Burlington Street in St. Johns. Police said Vandervort was exposing himself with his pants around his ankles while staring at a woman.
Police said when the officer approached him, Vandervort tried to punch the officer. The officer was not hit.
Vandervort then tried to run away, but because he hadn’t pulled up his pants, he tripped and fell several times, police said.
Vandervort admitted to police that he was high on some sort of drug at the time, but so far they haven’t said what it was.
He’s been charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct. A charge of assaulting a police officer was also laid, because I guess you get points for trying.
