Man caught with pants down at football game

A man with his pants pulled down caught the eye of a deputy working patrol around Sharp Stadium Friday night.

The deputy was walking around the stadium waiting for fans to exit the football game when he noticed a man on the eastern side of the stadium with his pants pulled halfway down his backside and his belt unbuckled. After the deputy yelled at the man and flashed his flashlight at him several times, the man looked at the deputy, placed something in his mouth and walked over to the fence line.

When asked why he had his pants pulled down, the man, later identified as Wayne Charles Pickens, reportedly told the deputy that he was doing it to some people behind him that were harassing him. Although Pickens was chewing gum, the deputy noted in his report that he could still smell a strong odor of alcohol coming from him.

He was asked to explain once more why his pants were pulled down and he allegedly told the deputy that there were juveniles behind him that were harassing him so he was essentially mooning them. However in the 10 minutes the deputy had observed Pickens, he neither saw nor heard anyone harassing him. When he told Pickens that, Pickens reportedly said it happened before the deputy arrived.

Pickens was arrested and charged with public intoxication. He was transported to the Newton County Detention Center and issued a citation.
