MASON, Ohio (AP) - A man wearing a woman's wig and a string bikini was
charged with taking a drunken afternoon romp through a park, officials said.
Steven S. Cole, a 46-year-old volunteer firefighter, told an officer he was on
his way to a Dayton bar to perform as a woman in a contest offering a $10,000
prize, the arrest report said.
He pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges of drunken driving, public indecency
and disorderly conduct.
Cole was arrested Tuesday after police received a report that an intoxicated man
was walking and driving around Heritage Oak Park in Mason. Police said Cole was
wearing a blond wig, pink flip-flops and a red-black-and-white striped bikini
with the top filled out by tan water balloons.
