A Hull man was arrested recently after he was found standing on the roadside in a Hull subdivision, naked and charged with one count of public indecency.
According to the incident report, deputy Daniel Martin was dispatched to the area regarding a call about a white male walking down the road, naked.
Dispatch advised Martin that they were receiving multiple calls about this individual. Martin found the man standing on Musket Ridge Road, “completely naked with his sex organs exposed.”
Deputy Chris Haston, who also was on scene, asked the man why he was naked. And he reportedly stated “I’m a moron.”
Martin asked him what brought him to the area and he reportedly said, “to find God.”
He was then placed under arrest for public indecency and taken to jail. Martin noted the man had multiple scratches to his arms, legs, and back. EMS came to the scene to assess the man for injuries. He was treated at the scene and then taken to jail.
In a second arrest, a Madison County couple was charged last week with reckless conduct after a child was found walking alone along Hwy. 98.
The two were each charged with one count of reckless conduct.
Sergeant deputy Joshua Smith met with a woman at the sheriff’s office regarding the child, who was allegedly found on Hwy. 98 at Edgewood Drive near the DOT building.
The woman said the child was wearing shorts, a shirt and no shoes.
Smith made contact with the child, who he knew previously from an incident where he was reported to be playing in a parking lot along Hwy. 29 in Danielsville, without adult supervision.
The child reportedly lives with his mother in the Sherwood community of Danielsville. Smith found out that the child’s mother was incarcerated in the county jail.
Smith then contacted a DFCS caseworker who came to the sheriff’s office and she notified the child’s father to pick him up.
Smith also learned that the boy and his sister had been left in the care of the couple at the mother’s Sherwood address.
Smith, another officer and the DFCS worker traveled to the Sherwood address where they met with the couple, who both said they did not know where the boy was.
It was determined that no calls had been made to 9-1-1 to report the child missing.
Other incidents on file at the sheriff’s office included:
•Theft by taking was reported at Joy Baptist Church on Glenn Carrie Road last week. Corporal Bradley Free was dispatched to the church to meet with an off duty officer who reportedly caught the offender in the act. Dispatch told him the officer was able to give a description and tag number of a gray Honda Civic driven by a young white male. Free met with the witness who said he was driving on Virginia Lane when he saw a car parked in the grass alongside the church. As he pulled up he observed a white male who looked to be in his early twenties dismantling the AC unit to the church. When the suspect saw him, he jumped in his car and sped off along Glenn Carrie Road. The AC unit was lying on its side with all the wires and tubing cut from the building. It appeared the offender was going to take the whole unit, according to the report.
•A woman called 9-1-1 to report that she purchased some Laura Lynn brand biscuits on July 28 from Ingles that had small pieces of glass inside them. The officer suggested that she return the biscuits to Ingles and inform them of what she found.
•Burglary was reported at Country Living MH Park last week. A woman who came to her mother’s mobile home after she was found deceased said she discovered that a ring and a necklace were missing from her mother’s jewelry box. She said several pills were also missing out of her mother’s hydrocodone bottle. Her sister told her she saw another woman crawling through the window of the home after everyone had left and the home had been closed.
•Harassing phone calls were reported on Lee Drive. A woman there said a man she knows has texted and called her over 200 times after she told him to stop. She stated in some of the messages the man made statements towards her male companion such as “I will cut his p#%@^ off” and “I will kill him.” She said he became upset and began harassing her after she left him.
•Criminal trespass and loitering were reported at Danielsville Baptist Church last week. Officer Josh Smith was on patrol when he spotted a boy bent over a swing set seat on the playground of the Danielsville Baptist Church (Crawford W. Long Street) and saw what appeared to be a fire on the seat. Smith stopped and went back to the scene and saw the boy running down Wagner Lane in an attempt to get away. He found another boy in the area and made contact with both of them. One had a green bottle containing a clear liquid and a cigarette lighter. Smith asked them both if they had any business at the church, they stated they were on the play ground. He asked for their names, which they provided along with their parents’ names and phone numbers. They were taken to the sheriff’s office and their parents and the department of juvenile justice were both contacted.

EMS arrived on scene and took him to ARMC for evaluation.
