A 54-year-old man was charged this week with misdemeanor charges of driving with license revoked and speeding following a stop where a deputy found him wearing only a thong and a pornographic magazine in the passenger seat.
John Wayne Kellerman was arraigned on the charges Thursday before Special District Judge Jason Seigars. Online court records show he appeared free on $1,000 bond and was ordered to return to court for a bond appearance Nov. 14.
According to an affidavit filed in the case by Garfield County Sheriff's Office Deputy Darryl Beebe, Kellerman as the driver of a vehicle stopped for speeding the afternoon of Oct. 15 on East Southgate.
Beebe clocked the vehicle traveling 57 mph in a 45 mph zone and initiated a traffic stop in the 1600 block of East Southgate when the vehicle pulled into a driveway, according to the affidavit. Beebe approached the vehicle and spoke with "a nearly naked" man with a thong bikini covering his genitals.
Beebe noted he saw a nearly empty jar of Vaseline in the vehicle. He noted the driver had Vaseline covering his hand and upper and lower body parts. There also was a pornographic magazine in the passenger seat of the vehicle.
Beebe asked the man for identification and noted the man was acting "extremely nervous" and the man's hands were shaking, according to the affidavit. Beebe was given an Oklahoma identification card by the driver, and the man identified himself as Kellerman.
Kellerman told Beebe he was looking for his friend's house and thought the driveway he pulled into was his friend's, according to the affidavit. Beebe asked Kellerman if he was masturbating and Kellerman told Beebe he was. Kellerman offered Beebe a rag to wipe off the ID card but Beebe refused.
A check was run of Kellerman's license and for warrants. Beebe was told Kellerman had a revoked Oklahoma driver's license, according to the affidavit. When Beebe told Kellerman his license was revoked, Kellerman told the deputy he thought his license was valid. Beebe then placed Kellerman under arrest. Beebe then explained to Kellerman that the license has not been valid since April 1985.
Sgt. Logan Niles arrived on scene of the traffic stop and completed a a vehicle inventory, according to the affidavit. Beebe noted in the affidavit that the driver's side of the vehicle was "extremely greasy" due to the Vaseline.
