CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- A 27-year-old Chambersburg man was charged with indecent exposure after two women reported seeing a naked man posing along Pa. 995 Saturday night, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Two 20-year-old women were heading north in the 1000 block of Warm Spring Road, also known as Pa. 995, around 11 p.m. Saturday when they saw a naked man posing against a sign along the roadway, according to an affidavit of probable cause from state police.

The women weren't sure what they had seen at first, so they turned around and went back, police said. The women said the man was bent over a mailbox, mooning them.

When the police car approached the man, he fled, police said.

The police car, which had its emergency lights and sirens activated, followed the man through several residential yards, police said. The man crossed Pa. 995 in front of another vehicle, causing a hazardous condition, according to the affidavit and a police news release.


In a car, police followed the man through the grounds of South Hamilton Elementary School and then stopped the vehicle in front of the man, police said.

Trooper Matthew Bonin got out of the police car and the naked man ran about 100 yards before slipping on wet grass, police said.

Bonin said the man did not know why he was naked.

The man blew a .17 on a breathalyzer. A .08 or higher on a breathalyzer is the score used in charges for driving under the influence, Bonin said.

Todd Edward Crenshaw, who lives in Chambersburg and Harpers Ferry, W.Va., was charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct, police said.
