Man arrested on public indeceny charge

  • Follow Latest News

An Evans man was arrested Sunday after a Columbia County sheriff's deputy said he caught him masturbating behind a glass door of an Evans business.
Michael Henry Odell, 58, of the 100 block of Sheldon Drive, was charged with criminal trespass and public indecency/indecent exposure. He was being held in the Columbia County Detention Center this morning on a $3,200 bond, according to jail records.
While patrolling a shopping center at 4158 Washington Road at about 9:30 p.m., a deputy said he saw a completely nude man standing inside of Exotic Nails. The man appeared to be masturbating. When the deputy turned around, he said the man ran to the back of the business and turned off the interior light, according to a sheriff's office incident report.
The front door of Exotic Nails was locked. The back door of the business was unlocked, but the owner confirmed no one should be inside and she didn't know Odell.
The deputy found a car backed into a parking space next to the business with the tag in the passenger floorboard. The car was registered to Odell.
Police located Odell across Washington Road at Club Car, where he works. He was wearing pants and a jacket, but no shirt or socks. The deputy identified Odell as the man he saw masturbating.

Caught with his pants down.

Caught with his pants down. Not in "Evanstowne". He was probably trying to "pass a kidney stone or massaging his prostate".

"When the deputy turned

"When the deputy turned around, he said the man ran to the back of the business and turned off the interior light,".... Um, why did the deputy turn his back on him? Was it out of courtesy/privacy to allow the man to finish up?
