LANCASTER - A prominent Garrard County pastor was arrested Tuesday afternoon after he allegedly exposed himself to an undercover officer at a public restroom at Jacobson Park in Lexington.
The Rev. Everett Priddy, 57, pastor of Hyattsville Baptist Church on Ky. 52 east of Lancaster, has pleaded innocent to the indecent exposure charge.
Court documents state, "Subject exposed and manipulated (private part) in public rest room of Jacobson Park in front of an undercover officer. Subject knew or should have known his conduct was likely to cause an affront or an alarm."
Priddy has worked in various volunteer positions as well as pastoring Hyattsville Church for the past 16 years.
He declined to comment today on his arrest. "I have been advised by my attorney (David Thomas of Nicholasville) not to speak to anyone publicly about this case," said Priddy, reached by phone this morning at his home at the Hyattsville Baptist Church parsonage.
