Pasco man, 64, accused of flashing school bus

PORT RICHEY — It was his 64th birthday and Jack Snyder wanted to get naked, authorities said.

So, at San Miguel Drive and Chantilly Lane on Monday afternoon, Snyder dropped his pants, shook his hips and wagged his genitals at a passing school bus full of children on their way home from Chasco Elementary, according to the Pasco Sheriff's Office.

A grandmother driving past to pick up her grandson saw Snyder's nude "butt" and called the Sheriff's Office, said Kevin Doll, agency spokesman. Shortly after, the Sheriff's Office began receiving calls from concerned parents whose children arrived home with stories of seeing Snyder's exposed body parts.

Snyder, who was still on the scene when a deputy arrived, said he thought flashing the bus would be "funny," a report states.

Snyder was arrested Wednesday and charged with five counts of lewd and lascivious exhibition. He told the Sheriff's Office he is homeless but has a mailing address on Limerick Avenue in New Port Richey. He was just released from the Pasco jail March 29 after spending two months for failing to appear in court for trespassing and violating his probation for criminal mischief. He pleaded guilty to the charges, court records state.

Snyder remained Thursday at the jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
