A Democratic candidate for mayor of New Orleans has been accused of masturbating in an Uber in California earlier this year.

The female Uber driver allegedly saw Frank Spurlock, masturbating in the vehicle on the way to a West Hollywood hotel on February 10.

Charges were not laid until August 31 due to questions about jurisdiction says Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White.

Spurlock is well known for his catchphrase “Make New Orleans Fun Again” and will be arraigned in Los Angeles Criminal Court on October 16. That is just two days after the mayoral primary in NOLA.

The driver claims that she was driving Spurlock when she heard noises coming from the back seat. She then stopped the car and opened the door where Spurlock was sitting and found him with his penis in his hand.

She went to a gas station and called authorities as Spurlock fled the scene. They found him at the hotel that the driver had picked him up from.

“They went back to the hotel and were able to get a name,” White said. “Based on the name, they got a picture and put it in a photo lineup, and the driver identified him.”

He has been charged with a misdemeanor charge of lewd conduct and if convicted, Scurlock would need to register as a sex offender in California.

“The allegations brought against me are without merit,” Scurlock said in a statement.

“It has been many months since this alleged incident occurred. I await my day in court and expect to be vindicated.”
