Public Urination Leads To Exposure Charge

A Sparta man is facing charges of indecent exposure after a Putnam County sheriff's deputy allegedly saw him urinating in the parking lot of the On The Run market on West Broad Street Tuesday night. Deputy Jason Phy says it happened about 9:30 as he was patrolling in the area and saw 44-year-old Jeffrey Allen Puckett standing next to a truck in front of the gas pumps "with his penis in his hand and urinating on the parking lot while traffic was passing by." Phy says the suspect put things back in his pants when he saw the police car, but was later asked if there was any legal reason that he would be "peeing in the parking lot." Puckett also allegedly admitted to drinking and was cited for public intoxication.
