Jim Bembridge is charged with five counts of indecent exposure.

Deputies say the Windsor man was working for EC Roofing, doing work at the courthouse. They claim on his way home to Bertie County the man would stop along Brown Road and Highway 903 and expose himself to people passing by.

He's in jail on a $5,000 bond.

    OK, didn't say anything at the time, but on September 23rd I saw this man exposing himself on the side of highway 17. I was in shock when I saw it, but never reported it. He was standing beside his truck which was a white truck that appeared to be some sort of work truck.

    Why do men think people want to see that mess? He needs to spend a week in Central Prison and flash there! See where that gets him !!!

    I too KNOW this man....I don't think he would ever "flash" on purpose and his story is that he was urinating. I don't really agree with him doing that where people can see him, but I don't think he was deliberately flashing anyone and I don't feel that criminal charges should apply here.

    I'm 99.9% positive that he was exposing himself as a rude gesture, but...What happens when a guy tries his best to find a private discreet inconspicuous place (when he desperately needs to urinate) but is unaware of or accidently caught with his fly open, doing his business. Is this still cause for criminal charges?

      the private, discreet, inconspicious place is called a restroom.

      I did try to suggest that possibility earlier, but it didn't get posted. Still, how many times does that happen in the same place?

      "Just Wondering"... to answer your question, it is obvious this guy did not "try his best to find a PRIVATE DISCREET INCONSPICUOUS place" to urinate. I know 2 of the eyewitnesses. He was standing on the "road" side of his truck, facing the road, pointing his "attentive" self at women passing by. Also, if he was so innocent, why did he run when a "man" stopped to determine what was going on in his perverted mind? He obviously needs help and hopefully now he will get it. If you will wave your winky at strangers along a roadside what else might you do?!

      I don't know, maybe you could start with what "eat slam up" means.

    Next time he should buy a ticket and streak the game. More coverage than standing alongside the highway.

    I'm sure all of your kids have seen more on your own Computer or cell.
