Police placed the man into custody. While in the backseat of the patrol car, the man continuously head-butted and kicked the plexiglass window and finally broke it.

Man Caught with Wet T-Shirt, Vaseline in Car
At 9:33 p.m. on June 1, police were dispatched to the 140 block of South Sheridan Boulevard where witnesses said a man was allegedly sexually gratifying himself inside the vehicle. The driver didn't stop the car and police had to give chase. When the man was removed from the vehicle, his hands were full of a moist liquid and an open bottle of Vaseline was found in the car. The man told police he had prior arrests for public indecency and for enticement of a child. There was also a liquid substance on the man's shirt when police found him.
