University at Buffalo police say a 19-year-old student was drunk and naked from the waist down as he drove down Main Street in Amherst in 20-degree weather early Sunday.
The UB officer who stopped Joshua B. Papkin for making an unsafe lane change got an eyeful when he walked up to the side of Papkin’s vehicle, according to university police.
The arrest report states Papkin wasn’t wearing any pants, underwear, socks or shoes when he was stopped at 3:18 a. m. at Main and Englewood Avenue, across from the South Campus, by Officer Guy Harvey, said UB Police Chief Gerald W. Schoenle Jr.
It’s not clear what type of upper-body covering Papkin, a UB student from Long Island, was wearing, nor does the arrest report indicate whether he tried to explain his lack of clothing.
He was given a cloth jumpsuit to wear after he was taken to UB police headquarters on the North Campus, Schoenle said.
Papkin registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.20 percent, well above the legal limit of 0.08 percent for drivers, according to police.
He was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated, DWI and making an unsafe lane change, and was issued appearance tickets for Amherst Town Court.
“I’ve had a thousand arrests, and I don’t know if I’ve had anything like this,” Schoenle said.
