Police say they have no clue why a man from Washington state exposed himself to an off-duty Nevada Highway Patrol trooper outside of the McQueen Club in Butte, but he went to jail for the alleged act.

The Nevada trooper was driving a pickup on Continental Drive with his two daughters inside when he spotted a man shoving a woman near the McQueen Club shortly after 5 p.m. Monday, police said.

When he stopped and yelled at the man, telling him to quit pushing the woman, the man started running toward the off-duty trooper’s pickup and screaming. Then the man, while still moving toward the pickup, exposed himself, police said.

Because his two daughters were in the pickup, the trooper drove off and called Butte police. They responded and found the suspect, 36-year-old Casey Patrick O’Brien of Pullman, Washington, near the north side of the McQueen Club.

Police say the woman he was arguing with was his grown sister and O’Brien admitted to shoving her. He was booked on misdemeanor complaints of disorderly conduct and indecent exposure and was released Tuesday morning after posting $770 bond.

Sheriff Ed Lester said police do not know what possessed O’Brien to expose himself, but he spent the night behind bars because of it.
