Man arrested after flashing at car wash

The Spokesman-Review

A 39-year-old man apparently thought flashing at a car wash Sunday somehow made his actions cleaner, but those who saw him disagreed.

Police responded to Tesoro convenience store, 14704 E. Sprague Ave., about 7:35 p.m. Sunday after an employee activated the silent hold-up alarm and called 911.

The employee and customers told police that a man wearing a shirt, pants and boots walked around the area pretending to pick up litter, Reagan said. His genitals were exposed outside the zipper of his pants the entire time, and he was occasionally touching himself as he walked.

Laine Kendall Callahan, 4927 E. Lane Park Drive, was booked into Spokane County Jail on an indecent exposure charge, Spokane Valley police spokesman Cpl. Dave Reagan said.

Cars collide avoiding man in traffic

A man caused a crash Tuesday morning when he entered a lane of traffic on Trent Avenue at Vista Road. He was seen singing, dancing about and flailing his arms around just minutes earlier.

Officers and deputies first responded to the Big R Store at Trent Avenue and Vista Road about 8:17 a.m. on a report of a man dancing wildly and who appeared to be having trouble standing up, Reagan said. When the man jumped into traffic on Trent Avenue about 8:30 a.m., a woman stopped her car to avoid hitting him. Another driver couldn’t stop in time and crashed into the stopped vehicle.

The man began fighting with officers after he was escorted to a patrol car, and a touch stun from a Taser was used to get him under control.

Bruce E. Nunn, 1010 W. Boone Ave., was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, said Reagan.
