AUSTIN, Texas — Austin police are charging two men with public lewdness after one of them led officers on a chase across Lady Bird Lake overnight Monday.
The Austin Police Department was patrolling the Peace Point Park near Lady Bird Lake and South Lakeshore Boulevard at around 2 a.m. Monday when they found the two men on a park bench, police said.
Police detained them both, but one of the men got away and jumped in the lake. APD used boats to search for him and eventually found him all the way across the lake at a power plant.
The APD is charging that man with evading police and failing to identify himself.
