A somewhat amusing incident occurred in Indiana as a man was arrested after being found dancing half naked in a parking lot of a bar after licking a toad.
Police reports say that Richard Mullins, 41, was escorted out of JJ’s Sideout Bar & Grill in LaPorte early on Sunday morning after failing to show valid identification.
Police state that after Mullins left the bar, other witnesses said he began dancing around the parking lot. He then picked up a toad and started licking it.
Officer Vincent Bowman of the La Porte Police Department noted in a police report that “the subject had picked up a toad and began licking it prior to the arrival of police officers to the scene of the incident.”
The officer in the report notes that Mullins had a “blank look on his face but no pupil dilation to suggest he was under the influence of any drugs.”
Police said they tried to reason with the disturbed man giving Mullins a warning, and at first he walked away. Moments before police were going to leave the scene Mullins then returned to the parking lot holding another toad in which he began licking yet again.
He was then arrested for misdemeanor trespassing. The frog whisperer will soon face charges in a local court.
