Former Tenn. Lawmaker Allegedly Drove 90 MPH While Masturbating Out Window

Three different women last week testified that a former Tennessee lawmaker exposed himself to them while driving at a breakneck speed, WJHL reported.

The accounts, each given independently last Thursday in a Kingsport, Tenn. courtroom, all detailed a similar incident: former Mount Carmel, Tenn. Vice-Mayor William Blakely first honking to get the attention of the women, then proceeding to masturbate, all while he was behind the wheel.

Witness Deanna Dykes said Blakely was “waving, grabbed his shirt, kind of pulled it up.”

“He was taking his hand, wetting his mouth, and masturbating,” witness Deborah Sturgill said.

Witness Kelly Street offered a similar account.

“At over 90 miles per hour, he had his penis out [the window]… he was masturbating… and that’s when it got really, really bad. I wouldn’t look over any more, and I wrote his tag number down on my hand, which I believe he noticed, and he exited very quickly,” Street said.

Facing charges of indecent and reckless endangerment and criminal attempt to commit aggravated assault, Blakely was investigated on similar charges more than two years ago when he was still in office. Recalling dozens of complaints in recent years, Terry Christian, a Kingsport detective, told WJHL that Blakely’s behavior has gone on “for so long an (sic) nobody’s addressed it.”
