ROCK HILL — A Rock Hill man who police say left his home without pants or underwear was arrested Sunday after a Sonic worker said he exposed himself to her while she was trying to take his order, according to deputies.
A 32-year-old employee at the Sonic restaurant on Celanese Road called deputies at about 11:30 a.m. to report that a man wearing a blue pullover jacket without undergarments exposed and grabbed himself when she walked to his car to take his order, according to a York County Sheriff’s report.
The employee said she was so distraught that she forgot to take the money for the order, but instead rushed inside to call police, the report states.
Dispatch ran the suspect’s vehicle tag and found an address, the report states. Deputies, along with a Rock Hill police officer, arrived at Dana Lynn Franklin’s home at Brittany Place apartments.
Franklin, 58, was wearing shorts when he told police that he had just returned home from the restaurant and had been wearing a different pair of shorts while at the Sonic drive-in, according to the report.
When he went to show police his other shorts, Franklin exposed himself to officers before he put on the other pair of pants, police wrote in the report. Police placed Franklin under arrest and in the back of a patrol vehicle as his wife told police she saw her husband leave the house without putting on pants or underwear, but tried to call him several times while he was away.
Franklin was charged with indecent exposure and taken to jail. He was released the same day on a $5,000 bond.
