Orange County sheriff’s deputies responding Tuesday to a report of a suspicious man next to a parked SUV arrived to find him attempting an unusual – and ineffective – method to fix a flat tire.

The man was trying to patch two damaged tires using gauze and Band-Aids, OCSD – Mission Viejo Police Services said in a Facebook post.

A citizen reported the suspicious man next to the vehicle near Felipe Road and Barbadanes around 6 a.m.

When deputies arrived, they found both driver’s side tires were flat and the 26-year-old man trying to repair them.

The man was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs, deputies said.

The suspect’s identity was not released.
