peeping president’s naked new year’s eve surprise
A US REALITY TV STAR GOT AN EYEFUL WHEN THE 40TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TURNED UP IN HER BACK YARD
Ronald Reagan was acting up
Jersey Belle co- star and Alabama nativ e Danielle Yancey may be accus tomed to the quirks of southern U S living, but she w as clearly unprepared for the New Year’s Eve surprise a familiar- looking stranger had in store for her in 2015 .
Just before 11pm on 31 December , Danielle’s husband Bart Yancey was emptying the rubbish into the outside bins and had jus t returned to the house when he spotted something – a human shado w in the driveway. Vestavia Hills has a r elatively low crime rate but Bart was nevertheless startled, so he turned and shouted. The intruder turned on his heel and fled. Bart followed him for a short dis tance and called the police .
Back in the house , the couple check ed the footage fr om their security camer as and discovered they’d managed to captur e the intruder’s entry and e xit from their property. The sight they r eceived could have sent anyone into peals of laughter - or made them shudder with the thought of what could have been. At precisely 10.53pm, a man opens a gate to a br eezeway and s teps out of the darkness to r eveal that he’s wearing nothing but two items – one to co ver his modesty and one to hide his identity : on his head is a rubber R onald Reagan mask and over his family jew els is a long ( appar ently too long) sock, which dangles conspicuously. He cautiously walks in, before ducking down behind the gate, then sprinting back out ar ound 30 seconds later.
Danielle told Alabama media site Al. com, “I know a lot of people ar e laughing about it and, honestly, I got a chuckle from it later, but at the same time, it ’s very concerning… I don’t know what he was planning on doing… He could have been messed up on drugs or alcohol, and in that mindset y ou don’t know what he w ould do to someone else .”
Lieutenant Kevin York of Vestavia Hills Police told the pr ess that they ’d received a call about a s treaking teenager in the ar ea, heading to a nearb y Baptist church, but they hadn’t caught anyone. They seemed jus t as concerned for the intruder ’s welfare on that cold winter’s night, telling D anielle that “he wouldn’t last long outside, nude lik e that.”
Danielle also said she didn’ t think he had a gun on him ( although he w as concealing a weapon in his sock): “but he could ha ve potentially hurt us or w e could have hurt him… Even if it w as a prank, it could ha ve become very scary and danger ous quickly ”.
Vestavia Hills Police were quick to speculate that this w as a teenage pr ank and indeed, just days after, in the new y ear of
2016, someone turned up at their door – fully clothed and with no dis guise this time – to apologise to the couple . “He said it w as just a prank and not intentionally done to us ,” Danielle wrote on Facebook, “He said that a group of guys did this together and he w as the one that actually came up to our entry way to our back door and the others w ere in a couple of v ehicles. The other guys w ere not seen on camera but they w ere a part of this .
“Maybe it will help others to be mor e cautious, safe and pr epared at their homes and also for those who ar e actually doing the pranks to not go to this e xtreme so they also do not get hurt, ’’ she wrote. “We have so many people in our neighborhood with guns , us included, and he could ha ve easily been mistaken as an intruder or r apist.”
