According to officials, members of the Brazil City Police Department were dispatched to Craig Park after an unidentified concerned parent reported a man displaying pornography in plain sight of park visitors in his vehicle.
Upon arrival at the park, officers found an empty vehicle parked on the access road within walking distance of the playground area. Several pornographic magazines were inside, lying open in plain sight where any passerby, including children, could see the pictures.
While officers were impounding the car, Gary G. Loudermilk, 31, Center Point, returned to his vehicle. He was taken into custody and transported to the Clay County Justice Center.
Police Chief Dave Archer told The Brazil Times the unique incident rarely occurs in this area, but confirmed it is definitely illegal for someone to "display pornographic materials" in a public manner, especially in a public park.
"(These types of incidents) are unusual and difficult to charge," Archer said. "We don't handle this type of situation that often."
Preliminarily charged with D felony dissemination of matter harmful to minors, Loudermilk's case file is currently being reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office for formal charges to be filed in court early next week. He remains incarcerated on an $7,000 cash bond (no 10 percent allowed).
