Until just now, I’d never come across any “Popadicks.”
My introduction to the surname comes in the form of a story about one Donald Popadick, who Ottawa Police claim exposed himself in a public park.
Yep. A man named Donald Popadick apparently exposed himself in a place called Mooney’s Bay Park. Everything does happen for a reason!
From an official Ottawa Police Service release:
The Ottawa Police Service Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Section have charged a 62 year old Ottawa man following an incident at Mooney’s Bay Park situated on Riverside Drive. Ottawa Police had received several complaints of an adult male exposing himself in this park since April 14th, 2014.
On April 29, 2014 around 9:00 am, an adult male exposed himself to a person near a pathway in the park. Police were in the area and were alerted. The suspect was arrested at the scene.
He’s been charged with an indecent act of mischief.
News about a old, bald, white guy in glasses acting weird around people in a park isn’t all that uncommon. But when that criminal appears to be living up to a destiny prescribed to him by his father, and his fathers before him, well–it becomes something more.
No, The Onion has not contributed to this report.
