Deputies after Dexter incident: Was that a joke or indecent exposure?
A Dexter Township resident saw a couple of vehicles stop on West Huron River Drive, then saw a man get out of his SUV to go talk to the occupants of the second vehicle.
And then - as the man went back to his vehicle - the resident saw a little too much when the man hiked up his shorts.
Now police say the incident may have been intended as a joke, but they're seeking that man for questioning after the resident made an indecent exposure complaint.
The incident happened at about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office.
Police said the people in both vehicles may have just pulled their canoes out of the Huron River at Bell Road.
It's unclear how the people knew each other or why they stopped in the road in front of homes.
However, a news release said, "Other occupants in the vehicles were laughing, so this may have been intended to be a joke."
The suspect was described as a white man, age 30-40, about 6-feet tall and 220 pounds with a shaved head.
Police were not available to describe details of the incident, including how the man may have known he was being watched.
Police also were unavailable to provide information on just how short the suspect was wearing his shorts before exposing himself.
