Allegedly drunk man found passed out in car while utilising penis pump led police on chase

A motorist found passed out at an intersection in York County, Pennsylvania, while "utilising" a penis pump fled from officers, prompting a brief chase, according to charging documents. Chad Michael Kagen, 39, of Springettsbury Township, faces a second-degree misdemeanor charge of fleeing or attempting to elude police according to court records.

He has not yet been arraigned and has a preliminary hearing set for Jan. 28, records state. It's the second time in 18 months that he's been accused of causing a police chase. Township officers were called to the intersection shortly after 5am on Dec. 13 for a report of a man slumped over the steering wheel, police said. The first officer on scene found Kagen passed out in the driver's seat of a borrowed Volkswagen Touareg, with a penis pump in operation, charging documents state.

The driver-side window was down, and the officer could smell a strong odour of alcohol, after which it took him "several minutes of yelling" to wake Kagen, documents state. Kagen turned off the SUV's ignition after being told to do so, and said he was on his way home from a York City bar, police said. "(Kagen's) speech was slurred and his eyes were glassy and bloodshot," charging documents state. As other officers arrived, Kagen "slowly reached for the ignition button and turned the vehicle back on," according to documents.

He was ordered to turn off the vehicle, but instead he put the Touareg in drive and took off at a high rate of speed, police said. Police gave chase with lights and sirens activated but lost sight of the vehicle. They filed the fleeing-or-eluding charge on Dec. 22. But they did not file a drunken-driving charge. Springettsbury Township Police Lt. Todd King said that's because Kagen's blood-alcohol level wasn't tested. "Without having him available to test, we could not charge him with a DUI," King said.
