Earlier this month, police in the US state of Michigan responded to a 911 call to find a 67-year-old man had been sitting in his car and “sucking on a dildo”.

The Smoking Gun reports the unnamed man was found in Elizabeth Park in Trenton, Michigan, with a flesh-coloured dildo on the passenger seat of his 2010 Ford Fusion.

He had been attempting to drive with the item in his mouth.

When the officer asked the driver what he was doing, the man said: “Sucking on a dildo, I’m sorry.”

He also allegedly “admitted to having a problem with sex toys.”

The man, whose name has been redacted from the report, was arrested on a charge of disorderly contact and detained in custody ahead of a district court appearance.

According to the report, the dildo was “confiscated and tagged as evidence #794.”
