(Newser) – It's not every day that a flasher covered in gold paint tries to steal a soda truck from a Chili's parking lot. But that's what happened this weekend in Oklahoma City, where convicted felon Dominick Christian Thayer walked into a Chili's wearing nothing but shorts ... that revealed his genitals and buttocks ... and were painted gold, as was his face. After allegedly threatening customers with a knife, Thayer went to the parking lot and tried to make his getaway in a parked RC Cola delivery truck.

A police officer who happened to be eating in Chili's ordered Thayer out of the truck at gunpoint and arrested him. He's now in jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, attempted larceny of a motor vehicle, public indecency, and inhaling a harmful substance, The Oklahoman reports. Thayer previously served a total of about 11 years in prison on counts of burglary, DUI, larceny, unauthorized use of a vehicle, and, yes, indecent exposure.
