A man is accused of flashing a woman and slapping her behind while she was walking to meet her boyfriend at a DeLand pub early Sunday, according to an arrest report.
The 27-year-old man is now facing a charge of indecent exposure and battery in relation to the incident, reports show.
According to the report, the woman was walking through the alley behind the pub around 1 a.m. when the man allegedly approached her and pulled out his genitals.
The man allegedly asked the woman to touch him and he slapped her behind when she refused.
The man allegedly followed the woman to the front door of the pub, at which point the woman’s boyfriend confronted him, the report states.
Police booked the man into the Volusia County Jail, where he’s being held in lieu of $5,000 bail.
Indecent exposure is actually a very serious crime and must be dealt with accordingly. While most of us know not to expose ourselves in public, when alcohol is thrown in the mix, all good judgement goes out the window. When this illegal conduct does happen, those accused deserve the best legal representation possible to fight and defend against the criminal charge.
Indecent exposure is not a minor infraction where a fine can be paid and the accused can move on with their life. An indecent exposure charge can actually cost you a lot more in fines and potential jail time. Because of this, the sooner you speak with a Volusia County Criminal Defense Attorney at Whittel & Melton, the better able you will be to fight the criminal charge.
