A Kalispell man has been arrested and charged with indecent exposure after he allegedly showed four children his genitalia near the Old Steel Bridge.

Raymond Carl Tommy, 23, was charged with two counts of misdemeanor indecent exposure and two counts of felony indecent exposure. He is expected to appear in Flathead County District Court on Sept. 15.

According to court documents, Flathead County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Old Steel Bridge along the Flathead River on the evening of Aug. 26 after receiving a report of an indecent exposure. Witnesses told the deputies that Tommy had jumped into the river and when he got out of the water he approached four young children. He then reached into his shorts, pulled out his genitalia and showed the children. When the kids looked away, he began “hooting and hollering” to get them to look at him again.

When officers approached Tommy about the incident, he stated that he “wanted to apologize for the indecent exposure.”

Tommy is currently incarcerated at the Flathead County Detention Center on a $35,000 bond.

In March 2015, Tommy was charged with assault on a peace officer, however the matter was dismissed with prejudice in January after he was deemed “not fit to proceed.”

If convicted, Tommy could be sentenced to more than 100 years in prison.
