Christopher Wayne Jensen says he has absolutely no recollection of whipping out his penis in the front seat of an Uber and then frantically masturbating in front of the unsuspecting male driver.
The incident happened in Coralville, Iowa back in July of this year. 27-year-old Jensen was drunk when he allegedly stumbled into the front seat of his Uber. At some point during the ride, he unzipped his pants and exposed himself to the driver then began fondling himself, according to a police report.
“Do you want to touch it?” Jensen allegedly asked the horrified man, who swiftly pulled over and demanded Jensen get the hell out of the vehicle.
The driver reported Jensen to Uber, who then identified him to police.
It took several months for police to finally track him down, but when they did, Jensen told authorities he had no recollection whatsoever of the incident. In fact, he didn’t even know the cops were looking for him until two weeks ago, when he was contacted and asked to turn himself in.
“I drank heavily and remember very little from that night,” he tells Iowa City Press-Citizen, “but I know what kind of person I am, and wouldn’t do something like this.”
Jensen says he vaguely remembers calling an Uber that night, but he couldn’t pick the driver out of a lineup.
“I don’t know anything about the Uber driver or why he would say this,” he said, “but I know there has to be more to the story than what he’s saying happened that night.”
Now, Jensen says, he’s fighting to clear his good name.
“I’m fighting to prove my innocence and hope people don’t rush to judge until the courts decide whether I’m guilty or not.”
