Meet Connor Rowan. Connor Rowan likes to party and there ain’t nothing wrong with that. You want to dabble in a little LSD to open your third eye? That’s your right (or at least it should be). But when you take LSD, strip nude, and then hop in your car to post up at the local Walmart and endanger the lives of others, that’s when it becomes an issue. If you want to get woke on a little acid trip, walk to a park or do it in your apartment, that isn’t too much for society to ask.
A police car making its rounds on Monday, March 6, found Connor Rowan in a Walmart parking lot, sitting naked in a car with the engine running, police said. When the officer went over to check it out, Rowan, 21, put the vehicle in drive and revved the engine. He then drove towards the cop, the responding officer alleges.
Police said two officers were patrolling the 100 block of Outer Loop at 12:07 A.M. Monday, March 6, when they saw Connor Rowan sitting naked in the driver’s seat of a parked car with the engine running in a Wal-Mart parking lot. When an officer tried to approach the car, Rowan put the car in drive and revved the engine several times, then drove toward the officer. Rowan slammed on the brakes without hitting the officer and then reversed and drove away.
Police followed Rowan through the parking lot to a Murphy USA gas station located next to the Wal-Mart, the arrest citation said. After telling Rowan to turn the car off, police found drugs inside a Marlboro cigarette carton next to his arm. Rowan told officers the drug was LSD.
Rowan was charged with multipele crimes, including one count each of first-degree wanton endangerment of a police officer, first-degree fleeing or evading police, driving under the influence, reckless driving, and first-degree trafficking of a controlled substance (LSD). Rowan was also charged with first-degree indecent exposure, which, unsurprisingly, is his second such offense.
Rowan is being held in the Louisville jail on a $5,000 cash bond with his next court date scheduled for March 16.
