Former NBA Player, Current College Basketball Coach Doug Overton Charged With Indecent Exposure

Former LaSalle star and NBA guard Doug Overton is in hot water.

According to the Delco Times, former LaSalle standout and NBA journeyman Doug Overton was charged this week with indecent exposure. Overton, 47, is alleged to have exposed himself to multiple people on the Cwynyd Trail in the Philadelphia area on April 30.

Overton, who played 11 seasons in the NBA with eight teams, is currently the head coach of Lincoln (Pa.) University, a Division II school. The school has not commented on the matter.

The details of the alleged incident are...well, they are bizarre.

According to police, officers received numerous calls shortly after noon Sunday that a man was exposing himself on the Cynwyd Trail. One of the callers told police the man appeared to be touching himself around his genitals. Another witness told police the man’s penis was outside of his pants and that he was continuously looking at a female in the area. The witnesses then told police he was seen walking on the trail with his penis exposed.

A male witness told police the subject was walking toward him with his penis fully out of his pants. He was described by the witness as walking “calmly and deliberately” and seemed to be aware that he was exposing himself but “seemed content with the situation,” police reported.

Apparently, three different people identified Overton as the man showing off his privates. If their allegations are true, he is in some definite trouble.

A second-round pick of the Detroit Pistons in 1991, Overton averaged 4.5 points, 2.1 assists and 1.3 rebounds in 499 NBA games.
