FREMONT, OH (WTOL) - Police say a Toledo man who posted nude pictures of himself at the Fremont Walmart is facing at least two felony charges.

Walmart security called Fremont police Thursday after they saw 44-year-old Rodney Kunkel's vehicle in the store's parking lot.

Authorities say Kunkel printed 58 copies of a picture of himself wearing nylons, high heels and a pink T-shirt that barely covered his navel. Additionally, police say his genitals were exposed.

Investigators believe Kunkel put the photos on at least six cars at Walmart and dropped off three more in store's cosmetics department.

Police say they arrested Kunkel after he posted four more naked pictures of himself and picked up some items from Walmart's lingerie department.

Kunkel told police he likes to dress in women's clothing.

"He mentioned once he leaves work he changes into women's clothing and drives home dressed as a woman," said Fremont Police Department Detective Jason Kiddey.

Kiddey thinks Kunkel may have pulled the stunt for shock value or even self-gratification.

Kunkel's girlfriend said Thursday that she was angry about what happened, but was not fully aware of the extent of the charges.

On the other hand, Kunkel has been convicted in the past of at least eight other public indecencies.

In fact, according to a 2004 police report, Kunkel exposed his genitals while gazing at a woman and her 19-year-old daughter at an apartment complex.

For that incident, he received up to a 60-day sentence, but now could face up to two years.
