Now that he’s no longer the Vice-Mayor of Mount Carmel, Tennessee, it’s only natural that William Blakely would want to find a new way to occupy his time. What’s not so natural or maybe a little too natural depending on your perspective is the pastime he apparently chose. According to police and a bunch of witnesses, Blakely has spent a good portion of the last 4 years driving recklessly down streets and highways while masturbating out his car window.
“I was scared that I was gonna wreck, he was gonna cause me to wreck,” witness Deborah Sturgill said.
Personal accounts in Thursday’s testimonies started the same – Blakely allegedly waving to get the drivers’ attention, then escalating to honking and partially crossing over into the drivers lane.
“Waving, grabbed his shirt, kind of pulled it up,” witness Deanna Dykes said.
“After the waving, it turned into a lot of beeping, him grabbing his chest area, and asking me going ‘please, please’ (clasping hands together) with his hands, may I… show me yours,” witness Kelly Street said.
“He was taking his hand, wetting his mouth, and masturbating,” Sturgill said.
“At over 90 miles per hour, he had his penis out [the window]… he was masturbating… and that’s when it got really, really bad. I wouldn’t look over any more, and I wrote his tag number down on my hand, which I believe he noticed, and he exited very quickly,” Street said.
Police say his victims range in age from 16 to 65, so at least he doesn’t discriminate, for whatever that’s worth.
Interesting to note is that the website this story comes from tags itself “News, weather and sports for Johnson City.” I wonder if they realize just how right they are.
