The Lincoln Tunnel became the tunnel of self-love when a man high on PCP blocked traffic with his minivan to take time to pleasure himself, officials said Friday.
Port Authority police busted Ismael Esquilin, 48, of Passaic, N.J., about 7:15 p.m. Thursday when his Dodge minivan was found stopped in the middle of the New Jersey-bound side of the Hudson River tunnel, holding up traffic.
When cops approached the car, they found Esquilin removing his clothes and “performing a lewd act,” Port Authority spokesman Joe Pentangelo said. The idling minivan was running and the keys were in the ignition, officials said.
Cops also found a glass pipe and small glass bottles containing PCP on the passenger seat floor.
After cops covered Esquilin with a blanket he admitted that he had smoked PCP, but refused to take a Breathalyzer test.
Esquilin was taken to Hoboken Hospital for observation.
Cops seized the drugs and impounded the minivan. Esqulin was charged with drug possession, driving under the influence of drugs, reckless driving and impeding traffic, officials said.
