A Calgary man caught masturbating while driving received a ticket for stunting.

Members of the Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit were called by a witness at about 10:45 a.m. on June 27 that a man, driving on orange SUV, was naked from the waist up and was masturbating while driving next to a semi truck.

The driver was northbound on Highway 2 by Ponoka and was eventually stopped just north of the Wetaskiwin exit. The witness was able to provide officers with a statement and photographic evidence.

Officers say the man had no interaction with law enforcement before this incident. He received a ticket for stunting, which brings a fine of $543.
