Naked man tries to force his way into Georgia Waffle House
NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - Police in Georgia say visitors to a Waffle House restaurant likely lost their appetites after they saw a naked man attempt to force his way into the restaurant.
Officers responded to the scene of the Waffle House in Sandy Springs after an employee called 911 to report a naked man was urinating outside the windows where customers were eating on June 7.
“This is the Waffle House. A gentleman just got out of his car and is naked standing in front of my door,” the employee said on the call obtained by a local news station. “He just peed on my door and now he’s walking inside. ‘Sir, you cannot come in here.’”
A witness later told police that she saw the man pull up in beige BMW and park in the middle of a lane of travel near the restaurant.
One customer, Derwin Mitchell, even pulled out his smartphone and livestreamed the video to Facebook, according to local reporters.
“It kind of shocked me as a customer, ruined my meal,” Mitchell told the news station. “I immediately went to video. I didn’t know what he was going to do.”
The man, 36-year-old Bashir Rasheed, was just coherent enough to identify himself to authorities (he didn’t have pockets for his wallet obviously), but he could not tell officers why he was naked. As officers questioned Rasheed, he grabbed himself and began to urinate while they were still talking, according to the arrest report.
Rasheed was taken to a nearby hospital for a medical evaluation before he was released with a citation for public indecency.
