A 26-year-old St. Tammany Parish man is accused of hiding his genitals under a Saints Santa hat and exposing himself in a WalMart parking lot.
Brian Harris was arrested after a woman complained of the flashing as Harris sat in his 1998 Honda Civic. The woman said that Harris made eye contact with her and grinned. Unfortunately, the woman did not get Harris' license plate but did give detectives a description of his car.
About two weeks later, a WalMart security guard was tipped off about a man masturbating in his car, again in the WalMart parking lot. The security guard was given a partial license plate number, which police used to track down Harris at his Covington residence.
Harris admitted to fondling himself under the Saints Santa hat, but denied that he exposed himself. Why someone would even admit to that is mind boggling. Just deny everything, dummy.
Harris is out on bond. If he is convicted, he could get up to 3 years in prison and a fine of up to $2,500 on each obscenity charge. Anyone know the value of a 1998 Green Honda Civic?
