Naked, Drunk, Pizza-Eating Duo Arrested in Westlake Over the Weekend



We've all had our fair share of weekend shenanigans and maybe a few have even merited a newspaper headline, but this weekend two bright young minds took their antics to a new level with a joyride through Westlake that resulted in their arrest.

24-year-old Alexandria Mauer and 33-year-old Kenneth Gillespie were pulled over on Basset Road shortly after midnight on Saturday after reports trickled in to police that a nude couple was loitering in a nearby parking lot and later had taken off in a car that was spotted driving on a curb and through tree lawn.

When authorities approached the vehicle they found the duo clad in their birthday best, with Mauer polishing off a piece of pizza and Gillespie balancing an open container of beer between his feet. The pair was promptly arrested — Mauer for OVI and public indecency and Gillespie for public indecency and open container. Police added on disorderly conduct for Gillespie after he urinated in the back of the cruiser.

The two were taken in for processing, and Mauer was released to a sober family member. Yet she was picked up by police just two hours later near Bradley Road after she'd jumped out of her family member's car (this time clothed), and made a mad getaway dash.

Mauer was taken back in and re-processed. Gillespie was released the following morning after borrowing and old pair of jail uniform pants and shoes. No word yet on next weekend's plans.
