What makes this extra special is he’s a former politician. Since there’s no mention of party affiliation we’ll assume for now he’s a Democrat.
Three women testified against former Mount Carmel Vice-Mayor William Blakely, graphically recounting times he exposed himself while driving. News Channel 11 had the only reporter in court for Thursday’s preliminary hearing in Kingsport.
“I was scared that I was gonna wreck, he was gonna cause me to wreck,” witness Deborah Sturgill said.
“It seems that every victim would tell the same story. But I knew all the victims did not know each other,” Kingsport Police Detective Terry Christian said.
Personal accounts in Thursday’s testimonies started the same – Blakely allegedly waving to get the drivers’ attention, then escalating to honking and partially crossing over into the drivers lane.
“Waving, grabbed his shirt, kind of pulled it up,” witness Deanna Dykes said.
“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 said.
Each witness testified they were fearful Blakely’s driving would cause an accident.
“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… and that’s when it got really, really bad. I wouldn’t look over any more, and I wrote his tag number down on my hand, which I believe he noticed, and he exited very quickly,” Street said.
