According to the Tennessee Highway Patrol, a DUI suspect apprehended last month in Anderson County was wearing a chastity belt at the time of his arrest.
The THP said that 35-year-old Curtis Scott Eidam of Oak Ridge entered a DUI checkpoint on May 14th on State Highway 62. Officers noticed the odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle and from Eidam himself. He admitted to police officers that he had drunk 4 or 5 shots of booze in the hours prior to the encounter and also disclosed that he had a handgun in the center console of the car.
Eidam and his female passenger Rebecka Alexander, who was reported to be visibly intoxicated, were taken from the automobile, which is when police officers noticed that Eidam was wearing some kind of red mesh hosiery, a small skirt identified by one police officer as a “tutu,” and a ribbon tied in his goatee. He failed a field sobriety test and was taken into police custody, at which time he informed officers that he would need a key to unlock the chastity belt he was wearing. He said one key was on his keychain and the other was being worn as a necklace by Alexander. The key was given to prison officials when he arrived at the Anderson County Detention Facility.
Eidam was charged with DUI and for possessing a weapon while intoxicated, booked and released a few hours after his arrest on bonds totaling $6500.
