Indecent Exposure

By  | 

A Fountain man is facing a number of charges for allegedly exposing himself more than a half a dozen times at Lynn Haven and Panama City shopping centers.

Lynn Haven police arrested 34-year-old Mark Newsome Wednesday night after he supposedly exposed himself in the Winn-Dixie parking lot off of Highway 77.

Panama City police added several additional lewd and lascivious exhibition charges against Newsome Thursday night.

Investigators say Newsome would drive up to women, open his car door, expose his genetalia and begin masturbating. Panama City police say they’ve been tracking him for several weeks after reports from the parking lots of Albertson's, Target and the Panama City Mall.

Panama City police filed felony charges against Newsome because he allegedly exposed himself to at least one child under the age of 16.
