now what are you doing in piedmont park after hours sir?
as i heard,
don’t nothing go down there but drawz and headz.
well a dekalb county sheriff was caught in that park after hours.
a foxholer sent me what went down via ajc.
DeKalb County Sheriff Jeffrey Mann called his weekend arrest for exposing himself a misunderstanding, but details of the incident raise plenty of uncomfortable questions for the law enforcement veteran.
What was he doing in an area of Piedmont Park police say is known for “sexual acts after dark”? And why, when confronted by an Atlanta police officer, did he flee, leading the officer on a quarter-mile chase before eventually surrendering?
Mann’s arrest on a pair of misdemeanor charges is the latest in a long series of scandals in DeKalb’s government, where dozens of elected officials and county employees have been found guilty of corruption in recent years. Four previous DeKalb sheriffs, dating back to 1972, saw their careers end following criminal inquiries.
“It is embarrassing,” DeKalb County Commissioner Nancy Jester said Sunday. “It’s certainly not a good headline for DeKalb County.”
In a statement, Mann vowed to clear his name. He was charged with indecency and obstruction and bonded out of Atlanta City Detention Center early Sunday morning.
According to the incident report, a police officer said Mann was exposing himself as he approached him in Piedmont Park late Saturday night. Once he got within 10 feet, the report continues, the officer turned his flashlight on Mann, identifying himself as police and commanding him to stop.
Mann turned and fled into a nearby Midtown neighborhood, running across 10th Street and into traffic, according to the officer.
“I continued to watch the male run while I waited to cross 10th Street and its traffic near Argonne Street,” the report states. “The male had stopped to tie his shoes. I got approximately 10 to 15 feet from the male before he noticed my approach. The male immediately stopped fixing his shoes and started running again.”
As Mann approached 9th Street he noticed he was losing ground to the officer, according to the report, and finally surrendered. The officer said he found two condoms in Mann’s right pocket.
“It’s tragic and unfortunate the citizens of DeKalb County have to endure yet another black eye,” said Harold Dennis, a business owner and Republican whom Mann defeated in November’s election with 80 percent of the vote. “The citizens of DeKalb deserve better by their elected officials.”
Mann’s charges are far less serious but potentially no less embarrassing.
The sheriff told Channel 2 Action News that he appreciates Atlanta police and said he is “working with the City of Atlanta to clear these charges.” He was booked into the Atlanta City Detention Center and bonded out early Sunday morning. Atlanta police are not commenting, saying the investigation is ongoing.
