LEESVILLE, LA (KPLC) -

A DeRidder man who was arrested last week by the Leesville Police Department for exposure after an incident in the Wal-Mart parking lot in Leesville is facing charges from the Vernon Parish Sheriff's Office in a separate incident.

Sheriff Sam Craft reports that 42-year-old Samuel "Sam" Blackmon was arrested by the Sheriff's Office stemming from a Thursday, Aug. 2 complaint from two women who reported that a white male had exposed himself inside a local restaurant.

Craft said the women took a photo of the man with their cell phone.

The photo, Craft said, was posted on a popular social networking site and was also provided to detectives.

The man was identified by several individuals who saw the photo, according to Craft.

Craft said detectives also obtained surveillance video from the restaurant which confirmed Blackmon's presence.

According to Craft, several small children were at the restaurant when the incident reportedly took place.

Blackmon was arrested on three counts of obscenity on Friday, Aug. 3 after being transported from the Leesville City Jail to the Sheriff's Office. Total bond on the parish charges is set at $75,000.

Blackmon was arrested by Leesville authorities on Aug. 2 following a July 31 complaint stemming from the Wal-Mart incident. The Leesville charges include obscenity and indecent behavior.
