Yesterday Bil posted that the city of homophobic cupcake/cookie artisans is finding itself with another gay scandal, although this one is a lot more banal.
According to an arrest report from Indianapolis Metro Police, the arrest took place at 110 West Washington Street at around 1:30 pm.
Andrew J. Miller, 40, of Carmel, is accused of soliciting an undercover officer for sex.
Following complaints of lewd behavior, two plain clothes police officers were conducting an investigation at the men's public restroom at Claypool Court, a place with a notorious reputation for illegal sexual activity.
IMPD Sgt. Paul Thompson said that when IMPD does receive this type of complaint, they issue plain clothes officers to the specific areas. "In today's incident, we did have probable cause and the man involved was taken to jail," he said.
The police report describes Miller exposing himself and twice asking the officer if he wanted to "touch it."[...]
The crime is a Class C misdemeanor. He faces up to 60 days and a $500 fine. Miller is married and has three children.
I'm from the same town Miller is from, and this is the sort of reason people move there in the first place - to seek safety in solitude and hope that one's basic desires can be sublimated into a good lawn. This story hits home the fact that you can't really escape sexual desire.
