Naked man outside Waffle House caught on video

Visitors to a Sandy Springs Waffle House got an eyeful after police say a naked man tried to force his way into the restaurant.

A Waffle House employee on Northside Drive can be heard in a 911 call describing a naked man urinating outside the windows where customers were eating June 7.

“This is the Waffle House. A gentleman just got out of his car and is naked standing in front of my door,” the employee said on the call obtained by Channel 2 Action News. “He just peed on my door and now he’s walking inside. ‘Sir, you cannot come in here.’”

Amy Stivender told police the man pulled up in a beige BMW and parked in the middle of the travel lane, according to the police report.

When the man paced back and forth in front of the restaurant, Derwin Mitchell, a customer, started filming on his smartphone. He streamed the video live on Facebook, according to Channel 2.

“It kind of shocked me as a customer, ruined my meal,” Mitchell told the news station. “I immediately went to video. I didn’t know what he was going to do.”

Police said Bashir Rasheed, 36, was only coherent enough to show he knew where he was, but he couldn’t tell officers why he was naked. Rasheed grabbed himself and started urinating while officers were speaking to him, according to the report.

Officers took Rasheed to Northside Hospital for a medical evaluation, releasing him with a ticket for public indecency.
