A Franklin man may have some explaining to do after police say he’s pulled over in Greenfield driving drunk and multiple other drivers say he was naked and masturbating while driving down South 108th Street.
Dennis Erwin Lorenz, 44, was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Tuesday with one count of lewd and lascivious behavior. If convicted, he faces up to nine months in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
The West Allis Police Department began getting numerous calls early Saturday morning about a man driving a Honda Civic nude and masturbating on Highway 100 between Theo Tracker Way and Cleveland Avenue. One woman was in her car at a stop light while northbound at the intersection with Greenfield Avenue when Lorenz pulled next to her car and stopped.
She said Lorenz was completely naked and masturbating.
Another woman driving northbound said Lorenz had passed her at one point and he was fully clothed. When she saw him again at a stop light, he was naked.
West Allis police officers eventually found Lorenz in a parking lot in the 3500 block of South 108th Street in Greenfield. He told police he had been at Silk Exotic Gentleman’s Club where he drank six beers and was on his way home to take care of his young daughter.
Lorenz, who denied driving naked, had a blood alcohol level of 0.11. He is free on $250 bond while awaiting trial.
