LADY LAKE, Fla. (TND) — A man was discharged from a hospital in Florida but then booked into jail within about an hour over something witnesses said he did, and that his hospital gown did not do.

The deputy who got to investigate this “suspicious incident” early Saturday spoke to two of three people who had complained about Darrin Milinski.

** Warning: The description given by a witness may be considered graphic for some. **

“While the defendant was standing outside of the front entrance in his hospital gown,” the arrest report said, “the defendant was showing his [body part] to him and other people.

“Victim #1 stated the defendant was lifting his gown, showing his [body part] and [body parts] to him, and was asking to check his ‘balls.’

“Victim #1 stated the dependent kept following him and did that three times, despite asking the defendant to stop.

“Victim #1 stated he witnessed the defendant showing his [body part] to an unknown female who was visiting the hospital, and was asking the female if his ‘balls’ were swollen.”

The report continued with Victim #2, who said he “witnessed the defendant showing his [body part] to an unknown female who was visiting the hospital, and he was asking the female if his ‘balls’ were swollen.

“Victim #2 stated he made contact with the defendant and was asking the defendant to stop lifting his gown.

“Victim #2 stated the defendant lifted his gown and showed his [body part] to him.

“Victim #2 stated that [the] defendant then lifted his gown again and showed his [body part] to him and Victim #1, while jiggling his [body part] and [body parts].”

The deputy spoke with Milinski while still “standing at the front entrance, wearing a hospital gown.”

According to the arrest report, “When I asked the defendant what had happened, he stated: ‘I was showing my balls to people because I felt my balls were swollen, and I wanted people to check them.’”

Milinski and his body parts are all 51 years old and neither of the men, nor the “unknown female” mentioned, were medical professionals or employed by the hospital.

Milinski was charged with indecent exposure of sexual organs. He was booked Saturday morning and has not been released from jail.

The arrest report did not say why he’d been a patient at the hospital, or whether he has cause for concern.
