In summary, the police arrested Bobby Crews, 22 year old white male, in a pumpkin patch 11:38 p.m. on Friday night.
On Monday, at the Gwinnett County (GA) courthouse, Bobby was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, public indecency, and public intoxication. The suspect explained that as he was passing a pumpkin patch on his way home from a drinking session when he decided to stop, "You know how a pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around for miles or at least I thought there wasn't anyone around" he stated in a telephone interview.
Bobby went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose, cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his alleged 'need.' "Guess I was really into it, you know?" he commented with evident embarrassment.
In the process of doing the deed, Bobby failed to notice an approaching police car and was unaware of his audience until officer Brenda Taylor approached him.
"It was an unusual situation, that's for sure," said officer Taylor. "I walked up to Bobby and he's just banging away at this pumpkin."
Officer Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached Bobby.
"I said, "Excuse me sir, but do you realize that you're master baiting with a pumpkin?"
He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there, and then he looked me straight in the face and said..."A pumpkin? $hit...is it midnight already?"
