A West Chester man was charged with public indecency, public nudity and public intoxication in connection with Aug. 6 incident at Bruner’s Family Restaurant in Muncie, Ind.
Douglas Walker of The Star Press reported that Rhody Gerald Kraemer, 52, of West Chester and Deseray A. Coil, 31, of Muncie were charged and will have their initial hearings Sept. 24 in Muncie.
According to a Muncie Police Department report, Kraemer, Coil and a third individual entered the westside restaurant that Monday morning and disturbed employees and patrons with what a witness called “loud and lewd” remarks that included frequent use of “the F bomb.”
Asked by an employee to stop shouting that specific word, Kraemer reportedly denied having said it, but then quickly used the word — or variations of it — in several sentences.
A waitress also reported she saw Coil fondling Kraemer’s genitals under the table at their booth. Another witness said she saw Coil expose her breasts, in the booth, while one of her companions took photos.
Kraemer — who at some point during the interactions with Coil was moved to toss his cowboy hat into an adjoining booth — briefly apologized, the report said, telling a waitress he and his friend “had been working for 58 straight days and had been drinking and were blowing off some stream.”
Eventually Kraemer and Coil went outside the restaurant.
At that point, a 77-year-old patron would tell police, he looked on through a window as Coil “pulled her shirt up exposing her breasts while pointing at her (genitals) as if motioning” for the senior citizen to join her.
The witness told police he promptly shut the blinds.
Walker continues to write that Kraemer was profane and “verbally abusive” when taken into custody outside the restaurant. Kraemer also refused to submit a blood-alcohol test, while Coil’s was measured at 0.129, according to The Star Press. Motorists in Indiana and Ohio with a BAC of 0.08 or higher are considered intoxicated.
