Canadian Idol semifinalist arrested for running around “naked and masturbating.”
Ramon Garfield Gordon made it through the Canadian Idol auditions in Winnipeg, but instead of going on to compete in Toronto, he’ll be under house arrest. That’s because he was arrested in early June when he was found “naked, except for a white T-shirt–complete with eye holes–draped over his head,” the Winnipeg Sun reports. He then “masturbated for oncoming traffic before he ran down the riverbank.” He performed similar acts in Oct., Dec., and Feb., saying at one point, “Look at me. Please look at me.”
