A man who allegedly masturbated on a public sidewalk in Ohio has been detained by police and charged with disorderly conduct. Police say he was making gorilla noises with his mouth the entire time. 

Timothy Cook, 32, and friend Osmond LeMasters, 24, were charged with disorderly conduct while intoxicated after police responded to a tip that two white males were "running around the lot taking off their clothes, one of the males growling and punching the cement" near the Giant Eagle shopping plaza in Warren, Ohio, according to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun.

"While Officers were en route to the call a second call came into dispatch about the same males," reads the report of the incident on Aug. 19. "One of the males entered the License Bureau and was waving his arms around. He then exited the business and began masturbating on the sidewalk."

"The License Bureau then locked the doors to the business due to safety concerns," the report added.

A police officer reportedly found Cook in the parking lot, "sweating profusely and acting like a gorilla,'" according to the report. Cook "was squatting on all fours, punching the blacktop and jumping up and down screaming incoherently."

Cook was then detained by police and placed in an ambulance, where he was treated for an apparent overdose, according to the Daily Mail. It is not clear what drug or drugs Cook had taken. He was taken to Trumbell Memorial Hospital.

LeMasters was released from the scene after he had been charged with disorderly conduct while intoxicated, according to KMGH.

Cook has a history of other offenses, including drug possession and theft, criminal trespass, burglary, domestic violence, possession of drug paraphernalia, breaking and entering, and carrying a concealed weapon. He also has a pending felony narcotics possession case.
