Rock Island police arrested a man found naked and covered in cooking spray early Monday in the downtown area.

Officers responded to the call of a naked man at 3:27 a.m. in the 2200 block of 3rd Avenue, where they found him carrying a pair of shorts.

Rock Island Deputy Chief of Police Jeff VenHuizen said the man, Chad William Forber, 41, of Blue Grass, told officers he had taken off his shorts because they were too big and would not stay on.

“He said he had been dropped off somewhere on 11th Street and that he had walked to the area where he was apprehended,” VenHuizen said. “He had lathered himself up in Crisco. He was covered in grease, and was holding the can under his arm.

“He said he was looking for a place to party,” VenHuizen added.

When officers searched the man’s shorts, they seized a quantity of drugs they suspected were methamphetamine.

Rock Island County prosecutors have charged Forber with possession of less than five grams of methamphetamine, a Class 3 Felony under Illinois law that carries a prison sentence of two to five years.

Forber also is charged with resisting a peace officer and possession of drug paraphernalia, both Class A misdemeanors that carry a jail sentence of up to one year.

A charge of lewd exposure was dismissed.

Forber was being held Tuesday night in the Rock Island County Jail on $40,000 bond.

    He got this backwards, putting on the Crisco when he's already fried.

    I only read the story to see if it had involved a local politician. No such luck. And no full moon either. At least not on this planet anyway.

    I think it might be Crisco spray in a can:

    It says cooking spray at the top of the article, then it says Crisco? So there is a difference, Crisco from a can, Crisco cooking oil, Crisco cooking spray. Can you say get it right QCTimes? You need a serious editor before you print things out. DUH.

    Gotta love the laid-back QC vibe. He didn't want to eat anybody's face -- he was just looking for a party!

    I hope RIPD squads have slipcovers for their seats.

    Well, at least he didn't eat somebody's face. If the police dropped the charge of Lewd Exposure, they are probably attributing his behavior to substance abuse and possibly mental impairment. Methamphetamine, 'bath salts', and all of the other party drugs are bad news. Drugs are like playing Russian roulette -- If you win, you get nothing, but if you loose, you loose a lot.
