Fulton County man arrested in Mountain Home

Thursday, August 10, 2006

Mountain Home Police arrested a Fulton County man for allegedly exposing himself to two female children July 21.

Roger Billings, 35, of Elizabeth is accused of exposing himself to the girls, ages 6 and 9, as they played outside their residences in Mountain Home.

Billings allegedly pulled up in a small teal pickup truck while the girls played. Authorities said he opened the driver's door of the truck and exposed himself. At this point the girls ran home and notified an adult, according to authorities.

Mountain Home policemen Cpl. John Schulte and Patrolman Robert McCoy responded to the location to take a report of the incident. The girls provided a description of the vehicle and the driver. As they took the report a vehicle fitting the description drove by.

The girls told police that it was the man who had exposed himself to them. McCoy followed the vehicle and made a traffic stop.

While stopped, the officer smelled alcoholic beverages on Billings, who said he had drunk a six pack earlier in the day, authorities said. Authorities said Billings failed a portable breath test and failed another breath test given to him after authorities took him to the Mountain Home Police Department.

Billings is charged with indecent exposure, a class D felony; and driving while intoxicated, a class A misdemeanor. He is currently being held at the Baxter County Jail on a $5,750 bond.
