According to cops, a worker operating a street sweeper on July 12 stopped to use the restroom at a small park in Brooksville, a Tampa suburb. While in a stall, the man told police, a man entered the restroom and went into the adjoining stall.
In short order, cops say, the victim was confronted with the private parts of Jerry Childress, 75, who “shoved his penis through the divider wall and waited.”
The “agitated” victim subsequently confronted Childress, who “promptly exited the restroom and fled the scene on foot.”
The unidentified victim then called 911 before going back to work and letting police take it from there, which clearly shows that he is made of stronger stuff than I. I would almost certainly be too busy freaking out to worry about the swept nature of the streets.
But not only did this fellow see fit to go back to doing his own job, he then had to do the jobs of the police when he spotted Childress coming out of the woods.
When Childress got into his car and drove away, the victim began following him (apparently while behind the wheel of the street sweeper). After tailing Childress to the Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church, the victim called cops.
When questioned (by police, not the street sweeper who seems to do everything else), Childress confessed, though no motive was reported.
He was arrested and charged with indecent exposure and later released on $1000 bond pending a court hearing in August.
He also appears to have lost his job at the church he drove to, where up to that point he had been employed as, of all things, the organist.
