Police arrested Malcolm Davidson, a 27 year old white
male, resident of White Plains, NY, in a pumpkin patch
at 11:38pm Friday. Davidson will be charged with lewd
and lascivious behavior, public indecency, and public
intoxication at the County courthouse on Monday.

The suspect allegedly stated that as he was passing a
pumpkin patch, he decided to stop. "You know, a
pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no
one around here for miles. At least I thought there

County courthouse jail.

Davidson went on to state that he pulled over to the
side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was
appropriate to his purposes, cut a hole in it, and
proceeded to satisfy his alleged 'need.'

commented with evident embarrassment.

White Plains police car approaching and was unaware

officer Taylor. "I walked up to (Davidson) and he's...
just working away at this Pumpkin."

Taylor went on to describe what happened when she
approached Davidson. "I just went up and said, "Excuse
me sir, but do you realize that you are screwing a

Taylor continued, "He got real surprised, as you'd
expect, and then looked me straight in the face and
said, 'A pumpkin! Damn... is it midnight already?'" [an error occurred while processing this directive]
