JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Police say a Jonesboro man accused of indecent exposure blamed a dog for his actions.
Just before 4 p.m. Sunday Officer Francisco Matos was called to the 1000-block of West Huntington.
According to his initial incident report, Kale Markeith Redden, 37, told Matos he had seen a dog urinate in a yard. Redden reportedly said he continued to walk down the road.
When pressed, however, Redden told the officer he "pulled his penis out and tried to urinate because the dog urinated, but was unable to."
When asked why he did that, Redden did not answer, the report said.
While Matos was interviewing Redden, another officer spoke with the man who called in the report. The victim told the officer he and his 9-year-old daughter observed Redden's actions.
Matos issued Redden a citation for indecent exposure then released him.
