Endless traffic can bring out the worst in us -- and so can excessive boozing. Combine the two and you get this dude, who decided to drop trou along a busy Bay Area highway during rush hour after one too many cocktails.

According to the Mercury News, police arrested 30-year-old Richard Blankenship after he allegedly mooned passing motorists along Highway 84 in Fremont last night.

Nobody was (physically) injured during the flashing.

Here's what happened: Commuters were going about their miserable business at about 6:56 p.m. when an allegedly drunken dude appeared on the median at Mowry Avenue and Peralta Boulevard and started showing his bare ass to drivers passing by.

Tired of seeing his junk, a motorists dialed 911 to report the offense. Then a second driver called the cops to report a semi-naked drunk guy running in and out of traffic, yelling "strange things."

When the cops arrived, they found Blankenship and arrested him on suspicion of being drunk in public. He was taken to a Fremont jail where he "slept off" his state of mind.

No word on whether he's feeling embarrassed, hungover -- or both this morning.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
