WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) - The man suspected of dumping large chunks of wood on a Detroit street has been released from the Macomb County Jail after a sentencing on unrelated charges.
In four combined cases Ihor Stetkewycz faced Indecent Exposure, Malicious Destruction Of Property, and Disorderly Conduct charges in 37th District Court in Warren. Three of the cases were in the city of Warren and another in Macomb County.
Stetkewycz told 7 Action News the indecent exposure charge was taken the wrong way. He said he was bending over to pick up the trash outside his home when his neighbors and their kids were in sight.
According to Stetkewycz, his mother bought him pants that were ten sizes too big and they accidentally fell down.
Neighbors argue they were so fearful Stetkewycz, they claim they had to install cameras to document his erratic behavior.
Stetkewycz was in court last week where he was ordered to undergo a competency exam. A doctor decided he did not suffer from mental illness.
Stetkewcyz will have to wear an alcohol tether, take a 52 week anger management course, and serve 24 months of probation. Judge Matthew Sabaugh ordered him to have no contact with the neighbors he is accused of mooning.
He had been taken into custody in June because he missed a pretrial hearing three hearing three times.
In June, Stetkewycz showed up to court several hours late. This clearly upset the judge and his bond was set at $50,000 for each count.
7 Action News reporter Tara Edwards tracked Stetkewycz down after a witness reported seeing his truck dumping sections of a tree onto Kalsh Street on Detroit's east side.
Stetkewycz denied putting tree parts there, saying he hit a curb and the wood accidentally tumbled out of the truck. Edwards asked him why he would just leave it in the street. We were stunned by his response.
"You don’t have to ask me, and I don’t take no orders from no woman by the way. By the way, I don’t take no orders from no women," said Stetkewycz.
When asked why he ignored people yelling at him to stop he continued with his offensive comments.
"It must have been a woman and I don’t listen to women yelling. I tell them to shut up." he said.
When we asked if he had any plans to clean up the mess he responded:
“Oh yes. I’m Mr. Clean Up. I’m not Mr. Clean. I’m Mr. Clean Up,” said Stetkewycz.”
He went on to tell 7 Action News that he's from Mars.
Detroit Police are investigating this case and it’s not clear whether he will be fined. Brown said he would be pressing charges.
In June, before entering court, Stetkewycz turned to 7 Action News cameras to extend an apology to Detroit resident Jeff Brown, the man who caught Stetkewycz allegedly dumping tree parts and tried to track him down.
Brown is also the man who asked 7 Action News for help to clean up the mess allegedly left by Stetkewycz. Detroit Police and the city’s Forestry Department came to his aid within hours of our phone calls Wednesday.
