A man in a flowery blouse and makeup deliberately slammed his vehicle into a lingerie shop because they wouldn’t give him a job, police said.
Jeremy Paul McIntosh, 27, who calls himself a cross-dresser and often wears women’s clothing, is in the Oakland County Jail and facing charges. He had applied for a job at the Intimate Ideas shop on Union Lake Road in January and became upset when he wasn’t hired, according to a police report of the incident.
Police say McIntosh showed up at the store about 9 p.m. Saturday and told a female employee he was going to run his Geo Tracker into the store because the company refused to hire him. Shortly after he left, the employee heard a vehicle hit the building seven times, causing merchandise to fall off of shelves and doing about $3,000 in damage.
“When the employee went outside to see what happened, (McIntosh) told her his Tracker was totaled but the building was really tough,” said Undersheriff Michael McCabe.
McIntosh, who was wearing women’s makeup, blue capri pants, red flip-flops and a flowery blouse, and a matching bra, told deputies he was homeless and wanted a job.
“He said he was homeless and was sick of freezing in his car at night,” McCabe said.
McIntosh was checked for injuries by the Commerce Fire Department but refused medical treatment and was taken into custody.
Not only does this guy need psychiatric help, but so do so many others like him who cross-dress and/or get sex “re-assignment” surgery. If only gay and lesbian rights groups stopped saying this isn’t a mental issue.
This guy is Exhibit A that it is.
On the other hand, maybe they should have hired him–it would open up a whole new “market” of customers in a rough Michigan economy.
