A driver from Passaic who was high on PCP was found masturbating in his minivan after crashing it in the Lincoln Tunnel, Port Authority police said Friday.
Officers responding to a 7:15 p.m. accident call Thursday found the 2005 Dodge minivan stopped with the engine running in the tunnel, the authority’s Joseph Pentangelo told Daily Voice.
The lone occupant of the vehicle — Ismael Esquilin, 48, of Dayton Avenue — was “removing his clothes and performing a lewd act,” he said.
Esquilin, who had a crack pipe on the front passenger seat and PCP on the floor, refused officers’ commands to get out, so they removed him, Pentangelo said.
They covered him with a blanket and took Esquilin into custody, Pentangelo said.
