Excuse Me Father, Your Holy Water Sprinkler Is Showing
This is Rev. Robert Whipkey. He officiates in three different parishes in the Denver, Colorado area. He is seemingly well liked in his community, but he was placed on administrative leave yesterday because he was caught nude in public before sunrise. Jogging. At a local high school track.
He was running around nekkid at a high school track.
According to the KMGH (via CNN.com) report, his excuse for this was that he didn't think that anybody would be around at that time of the day, and as he explained in the police report "I'm a heavy man and wearing clothing while running makes me sweat profusely. I know what I did was wrong,"
If convicted of the misdemeanor of indecent exposure, he faces up to 18 months of jail time and he would have to register as a sex offender.
The KMGH report goes on to show that Father Whipkey was arrested on June 22nd for walking bare-ass naked down the street at 4:35am.
How much you wanna bet that he'll have lots of running buddies in prison?
