WIGAN, ENGLAND – A 45-year-old man was ordered into alcohol treatment and must register as a sexual offender after admitting to getting drunk, pulling his pants down, and attempting to have intercourse with a mailbox in a shopping center, the Manchester Evening News reported.

A witness contacted Wigan police after hearing shouting and swearing outside her apartment window and saw the suspect, Paul Bennett, arguing with a woman. The woman eventually walked away and Bennett sprawled out on a bench for a short time before sitting up and exposing himself. He made his way over to a nearby mailbox and began performing a sex act, all the while shouting, “wow.”

Bennett pulled his pants up, according to the witness, but by the time authorities arrived, he’d exposed himself yet again. He became belligerent and cussed at police as they attempted to take him into custody.
