WASHINGTON COUNTY — Police arrested a 31-year-old Ivins man Wednesday for lewdness and intoxication after he allegedly walked out of his house naked and had a conversation with four juveniles.
Just before 6 p.m., officers responded to a lewdness report at an Ivins residence, according to a probable cause statement filed by the Santa Clara-Ivins Police Department in support of the arrest.
“Information was gathered and it was determined that Mr. Wilson walked out of his residence with no cloths (sic) on,” the arresting officer wrote in the statement, “and began a conversation with four juveniles.”
The juveniles told police that they believed the man was intoxicated because of his speech, the statement said.
The man was identified as Michael Douglas Wilson, according to the report. Upon speaking with Wilson at his residence, police took him into custody.
“Mr. Wilson was intoxicated and was transported to the hospital for a medical clearance,” the officer wrote in the statement.
After being released from the hospital, Wilson was transported and booked into the Washington County Purgatory Correctional Facility.
He was charged with a class A misdemeanor for lewdness involving a child under 14 years old; three class B misdemeanors for lewdness, and a class C misdemeanor for intoxication.
Wilson’s court arraignment is scheduled for Jan. 21 in 5th District Court.
Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.
