A Chicago man faces a bevy of charges after he allegedly stripped down all the way to his birthday suit and exposed himself in front of families watching a matinee screening of "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked" late last month.
Edward L. Brown, 34, allegedly waited until about a half hour into the 4 p.m. screening of the feature before he stood up from his front-row seat in the North Riverside Park Mall's Classic Cinemas theater, turned to display a different sort of "bonus feature" to the audience of 86 movie-watchers, which included many children, the Riverside-Brookfield Landmark reports.
Officers responding to the scene ordered Brown to get dressed and leave the theater, NBC Chicago reports. The theater also offered refunds or vouchers to all those in attendance at the screening.
Police say Brown told them he had been let into the theater for free and told by an unknown female to get naked and wait for her in the front row, where they would do heroin, cocaine and have sex during the movie, according to the Landmark.
Brown was charged with three felony counts of sexual exploitation of children in addition to one count of sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. His bond was set at $100,000 and he is due to appear in court Jan. 9, according to CBS Chicago.
