New Orleans mayoral candidate caught masturbating in an Uber

A mayoral candidate in New Orleans is facing a charge of lewd conduct after an Uber driver said she found him masturbating in the back seat.

Frank Scurlock was caught with his pants around his ankles during an Uber ride in California on February 10, Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White told the New Orleans Advocate.

Official charges weren’t filed until August since the Uber ride crossed a number of jurisdictions, and Scurlock is due to appear in court on Oct. 16 – just two days after the elections.

Scurlock, a former Republican who is now a registered Democrat, called the charges “without merit”. He also said he will assess over the next few days whether to stay in the running for mayor.

In February, the driver told police she heard suspicious noises during the drive and pulled over to find Scurlock with his genitals in his hand, White said.

When the driver went to the gas station to call the police, Scurlock left the scene, and she later identified him from a photo lineup, according to White.

If convicted, Scurlock could be required to register as a sex offender in California, White said.
