As covered here, Staples High School (Westport, Conn.) girls soccer coach David Sharpe was arrested and charged with public indecency and breach of peace for allegedly exposing himself to a female teen in October.
On Thursday, Sharpe provided a truly remarkable justification for why the exposure incident was accidental, as relayed by the Associated Press:
“The 29-year-old Sharpe told investigators he’s been putting on weight so he drives with his jeans unbuttoned because they don’t fit. He says it’s “possible” he accidentally exposed himself.”
That’s the justification provided by Sharpe to police. Really.
