KINGSPORT — A former Mount Carmel alderman and vice mayor who was investigated on indecent exposure allegations while in office more than two years ago has been arrested by Kingsport police after a new complaint was filed.
William Lee Blakely, 30, 1031 Allison Rd., Piney Flats, is charged with one count of indecent exposure as a result of allegations made by a female motorist who claimed that he “fondled himself” and made obscene gestures while they drove beside each other on Interstate 26.
Blakely was elected Mount Carmel alderman in 2008, and was later appointed vice mayor in 2010. Blakely resigned from the Mount Carmel BMA in June of 2011 after moving to Piney Flats.
