Lincoln police say they found man passed out in his car, his pants unzipped


Lincoln police cited a 28-year-old man with DUI and public indecency early Friday after allegedly finding him passed out, his pants unzipped, in the driver’s seat of a car left running.

Officer Luke Bonkiewicz said it happened just before 1 a.m. in a parking lot at the Nebraska Game & Parks Outdoor Education Center near 44th and Superior streets.

He said an officer patrolling in the area noticed a Pontiac Grand Prix running in the lot, walked up and found passed out inside. Bonkiewicz said the officer pounded on the windows to try to get his attention. When the man came to, he said, he didn’t immediately realize he was exposed. There were empty alcohol bottles on the floor, Bonkiewicz said.

He said the man was taken to detox at The Bridge and cited on suspicion of DUI, public indecency, possession of open alcohol containers and drug paraphernalia.
