Complaints were from motorists passing through the area with their children witnessing this lewd activity.

On July 13, deputies visited the residence, informed the suspect of the complaints, and instructed him to cease his actions or criminal action would be taken.

While deputies were on patrol Tuesday, Aug. 6 they observed the male standing naked in the door of the residence again.

As a result of the investigation, deputies arrested Joseph W. Salard Jr., 52, on one count of obscenity.

A Tenth Judicial District Judge has set bond at $5,000.

During an interview with Salard, he told deputies he was wrong and apologized for his behavior.
