Soldier arrested for exposing himself to off-duty police officer

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A Clarksville man was arrested Sunday after allegedly exposing himself to an off-duty female police officer.

According to an arrest warrant, the officer was jogging on Tiny Town Rd. when a white male in a silver SUV, later identified as 32-year-old Alex Mitchell, pulled up beside her and asked her for directions to Walmart.

The officer said she pointed in the direction of Walmart but noticed Mitchell was mumbling something else, so she looked at him and saw that he had his penis out and was masturbating, according to the warrant.

The officer was able to get Mitchell’s plate number as he drove away.

Police later made contact with Mitchell at his residence and he reportedly admitted to exposing himself to the woman.

Mitchell’s arrest warrant says he is employed by the U.S. Army.

He was arrested and charged with indecent exposure. His bond was set at $10,000.
