March 30, 2006 -- Police officers arrested a Sulphur Bluff man, 25, at gun point on the parking lot of a South Broadway Street business just after 4 p.m. Wednesday after first being notified of a "naked man" by a sheriff's deputy.
When officers arrived, they failed to find the suspect and began a check of neighboring parking lots. Minutes later, another call came from the business, saying the man was back.
A woman who had just pulled into a parking space, was talking on her cell phone when the suspect's car pulled up beside her.
According to police reports, the man pulled his pants down and his shirt up and exposed himself to the woman before he opened his car door.
The woman told officers she ran into the store to report the incident.
After spotting the suspect's car and approaching on foot, officers saw the man slumped down in the seat and moving around in the seat rapidly. At this point, arresting officers drew their weapons and ordered the man out of his car. Then, with his pants down, the man was placed face down on the parking lot and handcuffed.
Along with indecent exposure charges in Sulphur Springs, a driver's license check revealed a Franklin County warrant for the same offense in that county.
