Army Deserter Wearing Thong & With Panties Arrested in Boulder
Bummer. What’s worse?… Getting caught for desertion or having the whole country know you wear women’s panties and thongs?
The Daily Camera reported:
A 21-year-old man wanted by the U.S. Army for desertion was arrested in Boulder over the weekend.
In a strange twist, he was found wearing a woman’s thong and had three pairs of women’s underpants stuffed in his shirt pocket.
Boulder police said they received an anonymous tip Saturday that Christopher Mauger, who has a nationwide felony warrant for desertion, could be found in an apartment unit at 770 29th St. in Boulder.
Police went to the apartment around 4 p.m. and caught Mauger, who was wearing Army camouflage pants, at the back of the building trying to climb down to the ground from the deck.
Mauger — who Army officials say is from Centerport, N.Y. and was undergoing basic training at Fort Benning, Ga. — told police that he left the base while he was on leave and didn’t plan on returning. Then he tried to run away, according to an arrest report.
Two officers took Mauger to the ground and told him that he would be Tased if he didn’t calm down, police said.
…He was ticketed for allegedly resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, and taken to Boulder County Jail. Jail staff found three pairs of panties in Mauger’s shirt pocket and said he was wearing a woman’s thong underneath his boxers. He refused to tell jail staff where the undergarments had come from and why he had them, police said.
