Joseph Branum Arrested: Naked Oklahoma Man Covered In Oil Charged With Indecent Exposure
Oklahoma police arrested the 38-year-old Joseph Branum over the weekend after he allegedly removed his clothes, covered himself in cooking oil, and made lewd requests to a group of young women.
Around 10 p.m. Saturday, Officer Derek Hall responded to a call regarding "a naked person making sexual proposals to minors," according to a police report obtained by The Huffington Post. When he arrived at his destination, Hall met two juvenile girls who said that Branum, also known as "Booboo," offered them crack cocaine and asked to have sex with one of them.
When Hall eventually found Branum -- lying on his bed wearing sweatpants -- the officer said he thought the suspect was sweating heavily, according to the incident report. In fact, Hall soon found out that Branum had covered himself in cooking oil.
When asked what he was doing, the suspect responded, "getting ready to have some fun," according to the police report.
Quite a scene, or as one neighbor told the local news, "I'm living in a damn nuthouse."
Branom is charged with indecent exposure and making lewd indecent proposals to a minor.
