Lawton man arrested for indecent exposure

Lawton man arrested for indecent exposure

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –A Lawton man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after an employee said he came out of the convenience store bathroom and exposed himself.

The EZ-Go employee told police she was sitting near the men's bathroom when 34-year-old Lashawn Ray Green came out of the bathroom with his pants around his ankles and was holding himself with one hand and had his phone in the other hand.

The employee told police she did not know Green and he asked about charging his phone when they made eye contact. She said Green then went back into the bathroom and another employee called police.

Two officers tried to stop Green when they arrived, but Green resisted and barricaded himself inside a green Ford Explorer. A third officer showed up shortly after and they tried to coax Green out of the vehicle. Green continued to resist and was able to pull away when one of the officers tried to handcuff him.

An officer used his Taser and struck Green in the chest, but it had little effect. Six officers and a helpful citizen were able to eventually subdue and restrain Green.

Green was taken to Comanche County Memorial Hospital to be checked out due to his "bizarre and violent behavior" before going to the Lawton City Jail.

Green was booked on a complaint of indecent exposure and resisting an officer.
