A Tennessee man who exposed himself to KFC customers and laughed while masturbating in front of them was arrested on Tuesday for the 25th time. On New Year's Day, law enforcement authorities chased down 30-year-old Michael Birdsong in a hot pursuit that ultimately ended in the bathroom of a Wendy's restaurant in Memphis.

Birdsong caught the attention of a disgusted mother after she pulled into the parking lot of the fried chicken brand's ranch on Poplar near Danny Thomas road, Daily Mail reports.

Speaking to WREG, a tearful Lakisha Tate said, "I looked up and it was this man that was exposing himself, ejaculating constantly. When he saw us looking, that's when he really started playing with himself and laughing." Tate was accompanied by her sister and said she didn't find the incident "funny" at all.

When Birdsong realized that Tate had notified the authorities, he tried to flee the scene. Fortunately, Memphis Police Department officers made it in time to apprehend the miscreant. "He almost got hit by, like, four or five cars, but MPD did a great job. They were on his butt," Tate said. "I have five daughters and, just to know that things like that happen, it was really terrifying."

That said, Birdsong did not yield to responding officers immediately. He tried his best to evade arrest and eventually barricaded himself inside a Wendy's bathroom.

Authorities were able to push open the door after Birdsong's body weight was not enough to hold them on the other side of the door. This is not the first time Birdsong was arrested for indecent exposure. Interestingly, the New Year's Day incident was the 25th arrest for him since 2007. His last conviction on similar charges was as recent as 2017, according to the outlet.

Due to lack of evidence, the sick criminal was let off last year despite hitting a man on the head with a metal pipe and exposing himself to multiple women.

Having said that, most of his crimes over the past 12 years have revolved around trespassing. However, he was charged this week with evading arrest, indecent exposure, obstruction of a highway or passageway, disorderly conduct, aside from criminal trespassing.

Birdsong was scheduled to appear in court Thursday and put on two $600 bonds.
