Local WIN

Well folks…

When I clicked on the link, I was sure I’d found our next Burning Shame Award recipient. However, after peeping his mugshot and reading of his completely understandable defense, I totally changed my mind and realized that this story is, 100%, hands-down balls-out Local WIN.


A Church Hill man has been charged with indecent exposure after allegedly running nude through a Kingsport grocery store, wearing only a rubber mask on his face.

The man was arrested at a nearby Hardee’s, where he reportedly asked employees for clothing before hiding in the bathroom. Police say the suspect admitted to the incident, citing, “he was bored and didn’t have anything to do.”

A report from Kingsport police identifies the man as Daniel R. Lee, 22, of 612 East Main Boulevard, apartment A, Church Hill. He allegedly walked into the IGA grocery store, 3006 North John B. Dennis Highway, at about 9 p.m Friday.

Police say he was, “wearing only a rubber mask.”

Store personnel told police that Lee ran around the store exposing himself to several customer and employees. One member of the staff attempted to run Lee down as he left the store, but was unable to catch him.

However, according to the police report, the employee did nab a woman that accompanied Lee. She is identified as Katelyn M. Trent, 18, of 1849 1/2 Forest View Drive, Kingsport. She allegedly claimed Lee was her boyfriend.

The report says police located Lee in the bathroom of a nearby Hardee’s. Restaurant employees told police he entered, “wearing only an orange hoodie, ” and was, “attempting to cover himself up and asking for any piece of clothing.”

One male employee gave Lee a pair of basketball shorts, according to the report. Police found Lee in the bathroom, wearing the shorts and orange hoodie.

“Daniel advised me that he did run through the IGA nude because he was bored and didn’t have anything to do,” reads the officers report.

Lee was charged with indecent exposure, arrested and transported to the Kingsport jail.

So, Daniel R. Lee, this one’s for you, dude.

Hells YES

    Wow, rock out with your cock out, dude. That’s an awesome defense. If I were licensed in TN, I would TOTALLY represent him pro bono.

    What do you think of the kerfuffle going on in my home town of Dallas regarding Erykah Badu stripping in Dealy Plaza?

    Bob S – I hadn’t heard about that. I, of course, think highly of people who have the balls to do things I couldn’t do.

    As far as the ‘what about the CHILDRENS?’ thing, my personal take is that if the WORST thing my kids see in a day is a naked dude running through the grocery store or a singer stripping down in a plaza, it’s a good day.

    I agree. I think that too many people are too uptight over skin.

    I constantly find it amazing that people will get upset over a naked guy/iglr and tell their kids to change the channel to some violent show or play Grand Theft Auto.

    However, that said — how much do you want to bet that Mr. Lee will get charged with a sex crime and Ms. Badu probably won’t be charged with a sex crime?

    Gosh I am THRILLED to learn that streaking has made a much-needed comeback!

    Maybe we should make the fine for streaking relative to body fat percentage.

    The lower the body fat, the lower the fine. Anything over 10% starts increasing by a factor of 10 for each percentage.

    Bob, that is pretty bigoted of you against fat people. Don’t you want to see 300 lb men and women running naked down the street?

    He looks really happy and self-satisfied in his mugshot–like “I did what I set out to do, Yay Me!”

    Pro boner. Heh. Heh.

    I believe what you posted was actually very reasonable.
    But, think on this, what if you wrote a catchier post title?
    I am not suggesting your information is not solid, but suppose
    you added a post title that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Local WIN | SouthernFemaleLawyer is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s home
    page and note how they create post titles to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get
    readers interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
