Police arrested a Coralville man after he allegedly exposed himself to an Uber driver Wednesday morning.
Christopher Wayne Jensen, 27, allegedly got into the front seat of an Uber he called for on the morning of July 19, according to a report. Police say during the ride, Jensen pulled out his penis and masturbated in front of the driver.
Jensen asked the driver, "do you want to touch it?" according to the complaint. Police say the Uber driver stopped and told Jensen to leave the car.
He was identified in Uber records, told police he did take an Uber but said he didn't remember masturbating in the car, according to the complaint.
Johnson County Jail online shows he was released Wednesday morning.
Jensen reached out to the Iowa City Press-Citizen to talk about the complaint.
"I'm fighting to prove my innocence and hope people don't rush to judge until the courts decide whether I'm guilty or not," said Jensen.
He said he found out about the complaint two weeks ago, was asked to turn himself in and did so to cooperate with law enforcement.
"I drank heavily and remember very little from that night but I know what kind of person I am and wouldn't do something like this," he said.
Jensen added that he has no recollection of the Uber driver, just that he got the ride.
"I don't know anything about the Uber driver or why he would say this but I know there has to be more to the story than what he's saying happened that night," he said.
