After responding to a call of drug activity, Elizabethton Police Department officers uncovered a scene that some of them may have wished was a little more … covered.
On Wednesday, EPD Patrol Officer Sarah Ellison arrested Brandon Lee Lunceford, 28, 272 Long Hollow Road, Elizabethton, after she said she found him masturbating inside his car outside of the Elizabethton Elks Lodge at 1000 N. Sycamore St.
In the police report, Ellison said she responded to the area at approximately 2:24 p.m. after receiving a complaint of suspected drug activity taking place in the lodge’s parking lot.
Upon her arrival, Ellison said officers found a man — who would later be identified as Lunceford — self-flagellating in the driver’s seat of a four-door Honda while he was watching a video on his cellphone.
