This isn’t what you expect to read at 11:30 P.M. on a Tuesday night. However, Doug Overton, who is a former Sixer, former La Salle Explorer, a Big 5 Hall of Famer and most recently a Sixers analyst for CSN Philly [though he never added anything to the show … ever] was caught with his junk out on the Cynwyd Trail in Lower Merion, according to the Lower Merion police department. Overton, who was hired in 2016 as the coach at Lincoln in Chester County, a Division II program was arrested for exposing himself to both men and women while on the Cynwyd Trail in Lower Merion on Sunday afternoon, per the police. Originally reported by the Delco Times:
“According to police, officers received numerous calls shortly after noon Sunday that a man was exposing himself on the Cynwyd Trail. One of the callers told police the man appeared to be touching himself around his genitals. Another witness told police the man’s penis was outside of his pants and that he was continuously looking at a female in the area. The witnesses then told police he was seen walking on the trail with his penis exposed.
A male witness told police the subject was walking toward him with his penis fully out of his pants. He was described by the witness as walking “calmly and deliberately” and seemed to be aware that he was exposing himself but “seemed content with the situation,” police reported.
Police responded to the scene. Motorcycle patrol officers were able to locate the subject on the trail. The man was later identified as Overton, police reported. Three separate witnesses positively identified Overton as the man they saw on the trail exposing himself, police reported.
Overton was charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct, all misdemeanors, police said.
According to court records, Overton was arraigned April 30 and released on $10,000 unsecured bail. An attorney was not listed for him.”
Sounds like Doug is losing it, so without jumping to too many conclusions, hopefully this was a one-time deal and it won’t happen again. One time is too many, anyway. Hopefully he’s now going to get help.
