Police: Man Exposed Himself to Rideshare Driver on Columbia Pike

An irate man exposed himself to a rideshare driver after being dropped off at his destination along Columbia Pike early Thanksgiving morning.

The incident happened just before 3 a.m. on the 1900 block of Columbia Pike, near the Columbia Crossing Apartments.

It’s not clear why the man was upset, but police say he “threw himself against the vehicle” after exposing himself. He fled the scene before police arrived.

More from an Arlington County Police Department crime report:

The suspect continued acting disorderly and threw himself against the vehicle, causing damage. The suspect fled the area on foot, prior to police arrival. The suspect is described as a dark-skinned black male, 5’6″-5’7″, in his mid 20’s, with short curly hair styled in a fade or mohawk, wearing a black sweatshirt and dark pants.
