Pacer's Eqmt. Mgr. Arested for Indicent...

Indecent exposure arrest for this Pacer

It came before Game 6 at Birmingham hotel
June 4, 2004

The Indiana Pacers equipment manager was arrested Tuesday -- the morning of Game 6 -- at a Birmingham hotel and charged with indecent exposure.

"Apparently he was proud of his equipment," Birmingham Police Chief Richard Patterson said. "He wanted to show it off."

The equipment manager, Joseph Qatato, 44, of Indianapolis, allegedly was naked and posing in front of the window of his second-story Townsend Hotel suite facing Pierce Street at about 8 a.m. Qatato also was fondling himself, Patterson said.

The Pistons eliminated the Pacers in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals that night at the Palace.

Pacers spokesman Jeff McCoy said the team, which stayed at the Townsend during the playoffs, became aware of the arrest on Thursday afternoon and said "the matter will be handled internally" after a court decision.

According to a Birmingham police report, officers went to the hotel room and were greeted by Qatato, wrapped only in a towel. Police told him they had received complaints about asuspect fitting his description. He responded with a shrug, Patterson said.

Qatato was released from police custody on $200 bail. His arraignment is scheduled on June 23 in 48th District Court in Bloomfield Hills. A message left Thursday with a man at the Pacers' offices who identified himself as Qatato's assistant was not returned.
