Thomas Bates of Mableton is accused of showing up at his sister’s home in Mableton drunk, wearing nothing but a T-shirt, exposing himself to her neighbors. There were several empty beer cans around him when police arrived, according to the arrest warrant. Police say Bates’s sister did not invite him over nor was he welcome at her house.
Bates was arrested June 28 by the Cobb County Police Department and jailed on a $5,000 bond. He was charged with public indecency and public drunkenness, both misdemeanors.
