A Texas man with a bizarre history of sex acts with vegetables and children’s clothing has been sentenced to life in prison after police found him with a syringe of methamphetamine and he resisted arrested, according to local media reports.
Charles Robert Ransier, a 56-year-old New Braunfels man, was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday on a charge of tampering with evidence after he tried to break a meth-filled syringe before a state trooper found it in his vehicle.
At the time, Ransier, who then had nine previous felony convictions, was reportedly topless, wearing only a pair of jeans with melted wax on his chest. He was placed in handcuffs after attempting to break off the end of the syringe and ignoring the officer’s order to stop tampering with the evidence.
Police searched his vehicle and found children’s clothes, baby oil, duct tape, Barbie dolls, candy, and Viagra, among other weird items, like a cooler full of frozen cucumbers.
Ransier, who some would say has a rather unwholesome affinity to vegetables, was apprehended previously while possessing produce.
In 2014, Ransier was found on a baseball field, solely wearing women’s stockings, where he was reportedly “engaging in a deviant sex act with a vegetable,” Dallas News reported. And two years prior to that incident, he was found getting frisky with a squash.
He was also convicted of manslaughter in 2015 for the death of a police officer and sentenced to 15 years in prison. Authorities said Ransier was high on meth while driving when he struck Sgt. Mark Dyer, who was making a traffic stop at that time.
Ransier received a life sentence for evidence tampering and got 20 years for possession of drugs. He was also fined $10,000.
