PINEVILLE, La. (AP) - Fourteen men were arrested at a central Louisiana rest area during an eight-day sting police launched in response to complaints that people were engaging in sexual acts there.
Those rounded up included a retired realtor, a Rapides Parish school bus driver and a Bastrop mailman. Police say many of the suspects are married with children and grandchildren.
Lieutenant Greg Henley says the men were booked into the Rapides Parish jail on a charge of felony obscenity after police caught them having either oral or anal sex in the park.
This is not the first time a Buhlow Lake area rest stop has been the site of men being caught allegedly having sex.
Former state Representative Tommy Wright of Jena was arrested and indicted in 2004 after a Red River Waterway Commission park ranger said he found Wright and another man engaged in sexual activity in a bathroom at the Buhlow Lake Recreation Area. Last year, both men pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges. Wright admitted to flight from an officer and Charles Locker II of Deville to criminal mischief -- not obscenity. Wright later resigned his House seat.
Henley says the Pineville sting took place at the Fort Buhlow rest area during two, four-day periods that began in November.
He says the alleged sexual acts all occurred in broad daylight in open areas of the park, as opposed to more concealed areas like bathrooms or automobiles.
Police say additional stings in the park are planned.
George Michael moved to Louisiana?
One of the fine voting blocks for William Jefferson, (D), Louisiana.
That had to be the world's ugliest conga line.
Fourteen in one incident?
That is wrong. They should have to register as sex offenders along with everyone else. Certainly they pose more of a threat to public safety than Foley ever did.
Rest stops used as a homo Peyton Place
in Lousiana have long been a problem. A number were shut down because of this.
Rumor is they lured them there by playing George Michael music...
Why are we so enraged with same gender sexual activity? Is that not what we want?
In fact, I propose that whatever is allowed at home should be permissible in public (except smoking). I am not interested in a political career, but I think that I would make a great democrat. (Grin)
Saw a buncha rugby players troop into a party once doing the "Elephant Walk."
