Herman Broadus is a grandfatherly type who loves interacting with all the local kids. Problem is Herman can’t remember to keep his clothes on. The Moss Point Mississippi man was arrested by police when the mother of two young girls — ages 8 and 10 — complained. The girls claimed they saw the 70-year-old man “standing naked in the doorway, holding something in one hand and waving to them with the other.”
For his defense, Broadus claims to be a victim of circumstance. According to Sheriff Mike Byrd, his prisoner explained that he was just “headed to the shower, and got caught up in something on TV ….” According to the Sheriff, the suspect added, “he forgot he was naked, saw the girls, and waved to them.”
Broadus may have the best take on this situation, when an incredulous Byrd asked him how anyone could believe this fairytale explanation. The alleged pervert responded, “That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.”
Broadus will likely be a guest of the State of Mississippi for about 12 months.
