William Lee Blakely, 31, of 1031 Allison Road, turned himself at the Kingsport Police Department on Thursday evening. A warrant filed March 24 charges him with six counts of criminal attempt to commit aggravated assault and reckless endangerment, with an affidavit adding that he made inappropriate gestures toward a woman and five juveniles.
Court records state that during the incident his vehicle carried a passenger, identified as a "small child."
Blakely — a former Mount Carmel alderman and vice mayor — was previously arrested twice in one week's time during February of 2013, accused of exposing his genitalia while driving recklessly. Following media coverage, KPD investigators said more than two dozen females throughout the region came forward with accusations against him.
