ALLEN COUNTY, Indiana (WANE) — A Hamilton man is accused of exposing himself to people walking past him at the Heritage Days festival while repeatedly shouting “bald eagles,” according to Allen Superior Court documents.
Police arrested 62-year-old David J. Koenig last weekend on a public nudity misdemeanor.
A witness told police she and her husband were walking their 13-month-old grandchild when Koenig called out “bald eagles,” according to court documents. When she turned to look at him, according to court documents, Koenig pulled down his trousers with his right hand and exposed himself while facing the crowd of adults and children watching a circus nearby.
The witness quickly walked away and Koenig continued to yell “bald eagle,” court documents say.
A vendor at the festival told police she refused to sell Koenig beer because he appeared to be drunk, but she told police in court documents she heard him screaming after entering a tent : “You know you want to watch it!”
An Allen County Sheriff’s officer who worked at the festival arrested Koenig, who claimed he needed to urinate by going near a tent, court documents said.
Koenig was booked into Allen County Lock and released on his own days later. He is due in court later this month.
