Arlington Police say they received a call around 4 a.m. on Monday (Nov. 26) after someone saw a man “with his pants down exposing himself while walking” in the vicinity of the 3000 block of Washington Blvd. The area is home to several apartment buildings, a 7-Eleven convenience store and other shops and restaurants.
Officers then spotted a man “appearing disheveled and intoxicated” and arrested him. They subsequently identified him as 54-year-old Michael Tomlin, of no fixed address.
“The suspect actively resisted officers while they placed him in handcuffs,” police said. “Once in custody and while in booking, the suspect continued to resist, attempting to remove his hands from the handcuffs, and ignored the instructions of officers.”
Tomlin was subsequently charged with obstruction of justice, indecent exposure and public drunkenness.
