An Adams County man accused of exposing and fondling himself while standing in front of a York City church two nights in a row was at least wearing a shirt, police said -- but he was wearing it over his head.
Brant James Stultz was naked from the waist down when he stood in front of By His Mercy Ministries, 593 W. Market St., and masturbated about 2:35 a.m. Monday and about 3:30 a.m. Sunday, York City Police allege.
Stultz is awaiting a preliminary hearing in Adams County, where Gettysburg Police on April 11 filed charges of indecent exposure and open lewdness against him, according to court records.
Stultz, 33, of 161 Main St. in York Springs, is in York County Prison on $5,000 bail, charged with two counts each of indecent exposure and open lewdness, as well as one count each of public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
Alcohol-driven? After being arrested, Stultz told officers he doesn't know why he did it but that the behavior is "alcohol-driven," according to police.
Stultz was gone when officers were dispatched to the area of the church early Sunday morning, police said. But he was there 23 hours later, when officers were called to the scene for a second time, according to police.
The officers found Stultz naked except for a blue shirt over his head, police said.
Stultz ran into a breezeway when he spotted officers, who later found him lying facedown in tall grass and weeds, police said.
He smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech, the arresting officer noted in charging documents.
A woman called 911 after seeing Stultz naked and fondling himself on Monday morning, police said.
She told police she ran the red light at West Market and West streets after Stultz approached her car while continuing to masturbate, according to charging documents.
Earlier cases: In March 2010, Stultz pleaded guilty in York County Court to two counts each of indecent exposure and disorderly conduct and was sentenced to four months in prison, according to court records.
York City Police said Stultz exposed his genitals to passing drivers twice in two weeks back in fall 2009.
Those incidents happened Oct. 22, 2009, and Nov. 3, 2009.
