PHOENIX -

Police say a pedestrian who was walking in the road and flashing his buttocks to drivers was hit and killed by a suspected drunk driver early Saturday morning.

25-year-old Lee Cole Koontha was allegedly "mooning" drivers and laying down in the roadway near 20th Avenue and Indian School Road. According to police, he was likely drunk or had taken drugs.

Although his friends tried to get Koontha out of the road, officers say he was eventually struck by 48-year-old Stanley Stafford.

Police say they believe Stafford was also impaired by alcohol or drugs.

Koontha was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Stanley was arrested and booked for aggravated DUI.
