Douglas Kopcha, 46, rolled his vehicle into a traffic signal pole at the corner of Madonna Road and Los Osos Valley Road. He then climbed out of the car’s sunroof, took off his shirt and partially pulled down his pants, according to San Luis Obispo police.

Kopcha sat in the intersection with his buttocks visible and struck yoga poses. Police arrived and arrested him for driving under the influence and for driving with a suspended license.

No injuries occurred during the crash.

This guy was a substitute teacher in California schools and a Cal Poly Graduate. He also coached youth leagues in SLO and San Jose County, assuming it’s the same guy on LinkedIn. The graducation year is about right.

I can’t tell you how many of these cases seem to be people with suspended licenses. Their cars should be confiscated, and the license revoked for 5 years if convicted.

It is fortunate that he didn’t maim or kill an innocent bystander. Driving under the influence is not funny.

Pole dancing?
