This is not how you spice up retirement. Three women testified last week that former Mt. Carmel, Tenn. Vice Mayor William Blakely exposed his genitals to them while driving "at over 90 miles per hour." According to the accounts, Blakely honked to get their attention, then proceeded to masturbate while behind the wheel. "He was taking his hand, wetting his mouth, and masturbating," said one witness, Deborah Sturgill. Blakely has been charged with indecent exposure, reckless endangerment, and criminal attempt to commit aggravated assault. This isn't Blakely's first brush with the law: he was investigated for similar charges of indecent exposure more than two years ago.
