60-year-old man exposes genitals to Bloomington police officer on patrol



A 60-year-old man was arrested for public nudity Friday after he showed his genitals to a police officer.

Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Brandon Siniard said he was on a routine patrol around 4 p.m. in the downtown area when he noticed Buford Ison standing near the corner of Sixth and Lincoln streets near the Monroe County History Center.

Siniard said he thought he saw Ison pull his genitals out of his pants and gesture towards his groin but was unsure since he was roughly 50 feet away from him. When he got closer, Ison exposed himself to Siniard again.

Ison was arrested for public nudity. When Siniard identified him, he discovered Ison had active warrants for public nudity, unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle, theft, public intoxication and criminal mischief. Ison was not intoxicated when he was arrested.
