Police: Enid man faces charges after dropping shorts, urinating

ENID, Okla. — A 51-year-old Enid man is facing multiple charges after crashing his motorcycle into a house while fleeing from police then dropping his pants and urinating in front of the arresting officer.

David Lee Jackson is facing six charges, one felony and five misdemeanors, following the incident early Saturday morning.

Jackson was charged with DUI subsequent offense, attempting to elude a police officer and outraging public decency, as well as charges for no tag and insurance, and operating a vehicle without a license.

According to an affidavit filed in the case, Enid Police Department Sgt. Quent Tubbs saw a motorcycle at 12:56 a.m. Saturday in the 1400 block of North Van Buren with a tag style no long used by the state.

Tubbs attempted to stop the rider, who was traveling on the access road, but the rider fled eastbound over the grassy strip between the access road and Van Buren onto West Cherry, according to the affidavit. Tubbs followed the motorcycle eastbound, which was reaching speeds of 65 mph in a 25 mph zone and with vehicles parked on both sides of the road.

At Cherry and Washington the rider, identified as Jackson, failed to negotiate the jog in the road to continue east, struck the curb and came to a stop after striking the residence of 229 W. Cherry, burying the front wheel of the motorcycle through the home’s living room.

Jackson got off the motorcycle and moved as if he were going to run from the scene but ran toward Tubbs’ vehicle that was stopped in the roadway on Washington.

Johnson was in the grass between the sidewalk and curb when “in a defiant and forceful manner unbuttoned his shorts, jerked them down to his ankles and raised his hands and arms in the air,” according to the affidavit. Jackson, while exposing himself, then began to urinate on the grass.

Tubbs ordered Jackson to the ground several times, but Jackson would not comply. Jackson was taken into custody at 12:58 p.m. after being tased.

Tubbs notes Jackson had urinated in his shorts and had an odor associated with the consumption of alcohol on his breath and person, according to the affidavit. Tubbs also notes Jackson’s eyes were bloodshot and watery, and his speech slurred.

Jackson told Tubbs he’d had seven beers in the past hour. Following his arrest, at 2:22 a.m., Jackson had a breath test result of .15, according to the affidavit. A check of Jackson’s license found it was flagged and expired in 1991.

The motorcycle tag had a 2013 sticker, but the sticker was registered for a 1985 Ford Ranger. No records for insurance on the motorcycle could be found. Jackson also has prior DUI charge from April of last year.
