William Blakely, the Vice Mayor of Mount Carmel, Tenn., is accused of exposing his genitals to motorists while driving at dangerously high speeds.
Talk about putting the Vice in Vice Mayor!
"I was scared that I was gonna wreck, he was gonna cause me to wreck," said witness Deborah Sturgill, one of three women to testify against him.
"It seems every victim told the same story. But I knew all the victims did not know each other," Kingsport Police Detective Terry Christian added.
Personal accounts in Thursday's testimonies started the same - Blakely allegedly waving to get the drivers' attention, then escalating to much, much worse.
Eventually, "Waving, he grabbed his shirt, kind of pulling it up."
And then ... you don't even want to know. Or maybe you do.
"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 recalled.
It got even worse from there in the first witness' case.
"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."
"That's when it got really, really bad. I wouldn't look any more, and I wrote his tag number on my hand, which I believe he noticed, and he exited very quickly."
Detective Terry Christian says it was that writing down of the license plane number that served as a catalyst for William Blakely's ridiculous charges.
Apparently, this has gone on for some time.
"It went on for so long an nobody's addressed it," Christian said, referring to the dozens of phone calls the department has received "over the course of 3-4 years."
Christian says that last Thursday marked a turning point, with three women, out of what's said to be many more - conquering fear and embarrassment:
"It's important to make that report because if you don't, they're gonna feel that they can continue that offense and continue victimizing more females."
"It might be your best friend, your daughter, your mother, your aunt, your niece. And you need to make that report because that's what's going to eventually stop it."
Blakely is facing charges of indecent and reckless endangerment, and criminal attempt to commit aggravated assault with regards to the first two testimonies.
At least he doesn't discriminate. Police say his alleged "victims" range in age from 16-65 and that they drove a variety of different makes and models.
