ENID, Okla. — An Enid man has been charged with two felony counts of indecent exposure after exposing himself at an OnCue on South Van Buren.
Michael Dickson, 41, faces 30 days to 10 years in prison and/or a fine of $500 to $20,000 for each count of indecent exposure after two incidents on June 13 and June 19 at the OnCue, according to court documents.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest and bail has been set at $4,000, online court documents show.
Dickson exposed himself to a female OnCue employee, who described the incident as “disturbing and scary,” according to an affidavit filed in the case. Enid Police Department officers responded to the sexual offense June 19, and were shown video footage of the June 14 incident inside the store, which depicts Dickson walking into the store “with what looks to be an erection.” On the footage, Dickson gets a drink and lifts up his shirt to grab the wallet in his back pocket while at the register, exposing himself to the employee.
While speaking to the store manager, the employee talked about another incident of indecent exposure June 13 an employee told her about when looking for footage of the other incident.
The other employee identified the person who exposed himself to her June 13 as the same man from the June 14 incident, according to the affidavit. Footage from the June 13 incident showed Dickson again walking into OnCue with “what looks to be an erection,” retrieving a drink, waiting for the customer already at the counter to leave and then exposing himself to the employee while moving his shirt to reach for his wallet.
The officers then went to Dickson’s place of work and asked him about the two incidents, and according to the affidavit he responded, “Are you kidding me?” He said he was “not even aware of that” when officers told him the dates and times of the incidents. He also told officers “it was not on purpose or anything like that,” and he needed to go up there and apologize to them.
One of the officers asked Dickson if he could explain why his genitals were hanging out of his pants while at the register, and he responded that he “had a couple pair of pants that the zipper was messed up on” and he “never wore under shorts,” according to the affidavit. He told the officers he threw away the pants after he noticed the issue so it doesn’t happen again.
Dickson said he was not aware while he was at the register he was exposing himself, and he would never do anything like that on purpose. He also “never seemed upset and stayed calm,” which seemed “unusual” with the situation, according to the affidavit. The officer then told Dickson it was obvious what happened based on the video footage, and he replied, “Ah well if you got it on video it is what it is.” Dickson said the incident was not intentional, but he will do what he has to do to clear it up from here forward.
