Man walks into Auto Zone partially clothed, arrested for indecent exposure

DUNCAN — A Duncan man faces indecent exposure charges following his arrest Wednesday.

Guy A. Thurlo, 56, was arrested at 7:27 p.m. Wednesday after allegedly appearing without pants in Auto Zone on U.S. Highway 81.

According to the affidavit filed by Duncan police officer Ryan Atkinson, Atkinson and Lt. Chris Ray responded to a call at 7:23 p.m. from AutoZone “advising a male walked into the store without wearing any clothing. Upon arrival, Lt. Ray and I made contact with Guy Thurlo who was sitting in the middle isle number 6 wearing only a shirt.”

Thurlo was sitting in the aisle and his lower half was clearly visible, though the affidavit was much more descriptive.

“Thurlo was clearly confused. He could not make much sense while speaking and could not explain to us where he was or why he wasn’t wearing any pants,” Atkinson wrote.

About 7:27 p.m., Thurlo was arrested and transported to the Stephens County Jail via Officer Daryle Schmitt’s patrol vehicle.

“While en route to the Stephens County Jail, Thurlo became agitated and started kicking the cage in back of Officer Schmitt’s patrol car. When we arrived at the Stephens County Jail, Thurlo calmed down when we allowed him to exit the back seat,” according to the affidavit.

“Officer Schmitt then asked Thurlo if he was claustrophobic, and he responded, ‘I don’t know. I may be a monkey.’ Thurlo was then escorted into the Stephens County Jail where he was booked in for the district charge of indecent exposure,” according to the affidavit.

If found guilty of the charge of indecent exposure, Thurlo could face 10 years in jail, a fine up to $20,000, or both.

  • Could lethal inject furor return the firing squad?

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The disarray surrounding lethal injection in the U.S. is beginning to steer states back toward methods of execution that many had long ago deemed less humane than the needle.

    Tennessee jumped out front this week with a law that could essentially bring back the electric chair. Elsewhere around the country, lawmakers have been talking about reviving the firing squad and the gas chamber, methods largely abandoned a generation ago.

    The reason: Lethal injection — the primary means of execution in all 32 states with capital punishment — is under fire as never before because of botched executions, drug shortages caused by a European-led boycott, and a flurry of lawsuits over the new chemicals that states are using instead.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
