Deputies had to use force Sunday to subdue a naked man wearing only high heels and a turban after spotting him hiding behind a tree trying to put on pink women’s panties and pantyhose.

Jermaine Lloyd has been charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, public indecency and obstruction of a law enforcement officer  SPECIAL

Jermaine Lloyd has been charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, public indecency and obstruction of a law enforcement officer

The man, identified as 28-year-old Jermaine Lloyd, fled from deputies while trying to pull on the undergarments and carrying a purple bag and sweatpants, according to a police report.

Police had been called to Lake Olmstead Park about 7:45 a.m. after the naked man was reported running in the area.

After cornering the suspect, Richmond County sheriff’s Deputy Jonathan Counts pulled his Taser and told Lloyd to get on the ground. Police said Lloyd ran “in a threatening manner” toward Deputy Austin Shepherd, who hit him below the knee with a baton.

After being handcuffed, Lloyd again tried to run from deputies, forcing them to use leg shackles.

Deputies discovered a purple Crown Royal bag that they said Lloyd had dropped while running from police; it had cocaine and marijuana in it.

Sunday’s incident was not Lloyd’s first encounter with deputies this month.

About 11:40 p.m. Wednesday, deputies stopped a 1993 Ford Explorer after it almost ran up the curb at National Hill shopping center on Washington Road. After deputies told Lloyd he was under arrest for driving under the influence, he ran away and escaped arrest.

While preparing the vehicle for towing, police reportedly found cocaine and marijuana.

Lloyd, of the 2100 block of Ellis St., has been charged with possession of cocaine, possession of marijuana, public indecency and obstruction of a law enforcement officer for Sunday’s incident. He also has been charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana, obstruction of a law enforcement officer, driving under the influence and failure to maintain lane from Wednesday’s incident.

Prison

He probably won't fare too well in prison. Why don't they just drive him to Miami and set him free?

Just can't survive in society and need to be taken away. There really is no other way to say it.

One Less Bell to Answer

I am not sure if he is gay or if he is in some kind of initiation. Either way, someone is probably at home thinking, "Öne Less Bell to Answer".

Augusta

Somewhere around 1970, Bob Dylan wrote a song and gave it to his friend Johnny Cash to record. The song was Wanted Man. Here's my parody:

Naked man in ol’ Frog Hollow,
Naked man in Summerville.
Naked man over at the Masters,
Naked man at Daniel Field.

Naked man in the Maxwell Towers,
Naked man at Lake Olmstead.
Naked man at the Marriott Hotel,
Naked man at the parking deck.

Naked man at the Marble Palace,
Naked man at Sibley Mill.
Naked man at Gooddale Landing,
Naked man on Gracewood Hill.

Naked man in South Augusta,
Naked man in Cherry Tree.
Wherever you look around tonight
You might get a glimpse of me.

You can go to youTube, search for "Wanted Man" and Johnny Cash to hear the melody.

Probably Obama's illegitimate son from an ole "girlfriend". We see the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. He's a nut.

Media bias

The Chronicle HAD to run this story because it was such a bizarre crime. Yet we NEVER read about people like this in their coverage of Gay Pride parades, LGBT Week at SRS, etc. which is full of nice, normal jes' folks CSRA neighbors -- Stephen and Michael in their cardigan sweaters, helping their neighbors with their snowplows in the winter, pushing their cute adopted Chinese kids in the park in their expensive stroller, and cleaning up after their dogs in the suburban neighborhood where they dwell so respectably in the upper middle class. LGBT people are like BOTH them and turban man profiled here, but the AC (like all other MS media) only cover the nicely-nicely neighbors until a weird occurrence like this FORCES them to write something about turban man and his ilk. I would welcome a more balanced approach. The AC would NEVER run a photo of this dude even if he was the Grand Marshal of the Gay Pride parade. Feh.

Let it all hing out or loose

We need to stop using our President in things like this. It seems as though some people just love to include the President in any or everything that is about someone who is BLACK. This is a clear cut on why this area or Augusta will never get to be an international city because of low character people that always uses race to get a point across.

you aren't much of a compromiser, the compromiser

Rather, you clearly sound like someone with a single agenda, and it isn't about LBGT rights, bias or coverage.

What is it that makes someone like you believe that saying anything less than flattering about someone who, coincidentally, happens to be BLACK automatically makes the critic anti-black? Jumping to that reflexively nrepresents genuine tunnel vision, besides being totally off topic.

That's the kind of regressive thinking that holds back communities.

“the compromiser”, the

“the compromiser”, the comment referring to the President was made in jest because everything that ails this country was and is still being blamed on President Bush by liberals. The comment had nothing racial to do with the fact that this man that was arrested is black and our current President is half black and half white. This city will never be an international city because of people like yourself that see racism in everything.

I still can't get over how sad this is

It's says something scary about us that we love stories like this, that we find someone's total humiliation and degradation so entertaining.

IMO, this falls under the category of "too much information" and represents the exploitation of a miserable soul who can't fight back, and it shows a depressing lack of journalistic restraint.

This story would never have been written this way if it had been about one of Billy Morris' relatives.
