LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence police say a Missouri man has been taken to jail on suspicion of indecent exposure after allegedly "mooning" officers who pulled him over in a traffic stop.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the incident happened Thursday in Lawrence.

Lawrence Police Department spokeswoman Kim Murphree says officers initially pulled the 23-year-old Liberty resident over on suspicion of operating a vehicle under the influence and having an open container.

She says he walked away from the vehicle to supposedly go to a gas station to relieve himself but instead stopped on the sidewalk and started yelling at officers and exposing himself twice.

Police say alcohol is considered a contributing factor.
