Teacher arrested for allegedly standing in driveway wearing only ski cap and goggles

Posted: Updated:

WALPOLE, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A teacher was arrested Wednesday for allegedly walking around his driveway wearing only a ski cap and goggles.

A woman passing by the Norfolk County Agricultural High School teacher's home in Walpole called police after seeing the 44-year-old exposing himself, officials say.

The woman reported the incident to police and told them that she saw Marc Mertz in his driveway wearing a ski cap, goggles and a towel. However, when she drove by the home a second time, he'd lost the towel.

A couple of hours later, another witness saw Mertz completely nude, and said he thrust his hips onto his mailbox as she drove by.

Mertz was arrested on charges of open and gross lewdness and disturbing the peace at about 3 p.m. Wednesday.

This was not the first time he has been in trouble for exposing himself.

"He had apparently exposed himself to some boaters that were launching at a lake in a similar type incident in Natick," Dep. Chief John Carmichael said.

That happened in 2012.

As of Friday night, Mertz was released on $1,000 bail and ordered to stay away from the women who reported him. Norfolk County Agricultural High School has put the teacher on administrative leave.
