Man’s Claim to Witness Murder Doesn’t Stand Up

Omaha police arrested a man for, among other things, lewd conduct after he came to them claiming to have witnessed a murder.

According to a police report, 53-year-old Darrell Moore went to Central Police Headquarters downtown on Wednesday. He told the front desk officer that he just witnessed a murder. He then proceeded to take off his pants.

The officers told him to keep his pants on but he refused. Moore then allegedly proceeded to gratify himself sexually in front of the officers. When a police sergeant approached the man, Moore allegedly spit toward him. He also allegedly tried hitting an officer, who blocked his attempt.

Moore was arrested and booked for lewd conduct, indecent exposure, and disorderly conduct.
