Okay so I, as well as almost every single person in America, was aware that September 11th, 2011 was the ten year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers in New York City. For this reason, and this reason only, this native Cuban happened to make big news on nearly every news blog I’ve been through.
While driving yesterday with his wife and young daughter to a 9/11 ceremony in the Florida Keys, a Highway Patrol officer spotted a pantsless man exposing himself through the sunroof of a Mercedes-Benz, according to a police report.
After the off-duty cop called in the sighting, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputies pulled over the vehicle and quizzed its three occupants. The driver and a backseat passenger both admitted seeing Julio Mompeller, who was seated in the front seat, “standing up through the sunroof with his pants down and his genitals and buttocks exposed as they traveled southbound on US1.”
The 31-year-old Mompeller, an unemployed Cuban native who lives in Miami, was arrested on a misdemeanor indecent exposure charge. It is unclear why Mompeller allegedly exposed himself to motorists at 8:30 on a Sunday morning.
Mompeller, pictured in the above mug shot, was booked yesterday into the Monroe County lockup. He was released earlier today after posting $500 bond.
