A Jesup man was asked to leave an area gas station after the Sheriff’s Office received a complaint that the man was fondling himself in the parking lot.
A deputy was dispatched to the Patrick Mill Road business after a witness advised seeing the man “playing with himself” in the cab of a commercial vehicle.
The suspect was found sitting in the driver’s seat of his vehicle wearing underwear.
When the deputy asked why the man was not wearing pants, the man claimed he was in the process of changing clothes.
According to the man, he had to change his pants because he recently had a vasectomy and his pants were restrictive to the point that they were causing him discomfort.
The witness did not wish to press charges, so the deputy instructed the man to leave the business. The deputy also advised the man that in order to avoid future incidents, he should change clothes in a restroom instead of the parking lot.

After the man returned her call, the ex-wife reported him for violating his bond.
The man was arrested again and spent two weeks in the Barrow County Detention Center before being released.
Upon his release, he was given his personal belongings including his cell phone.
While the man was incarcerated, his ex-wife called his cell phone, left a voice message and sent approximately 25 text messages.
The man said he felt his ex-wife was trying to get him arrested again and that he needed to be protected.
The man was advised to obtain a temporary protective order against his ex-wife.
No charges were filed.
