Police: Florida man climbed on playground equipment, yelled vulgarities


CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla. (WFLA/AP) — Police say a Clearwater, Florida man climbed on top of playground equipment and yelled a vulgar explanation of where babies come from as the children played. 

A Clearwater Police Department officer said he watched 30-year-old Otis Dawayne Ryan climb on top of a piece of equipment where children were playing Sunday and started shouting that babies come out of women.

The officer said Ryan used inappropriate language.

Parents rushed to remove their children from the busy playground.

Earlier in the day, police said Ryan approached tourists and made inappropriate comments to women in an effort to get their male partners to confront him.

An officer was watching him at the time. Ryan was charged with disorderly conduct and fined $118.

On Friday night, Ryan was arrested for disorderly conduct after police say he began swearing during a street performance at Pier 60 and started dancing into the street performance.

Children were in the audience when it happened.
