Man naked in Houston-area stores arrested in Oklahoma
THE WOODLANDS, Texas (AP) — Suburban Houston authorities say a former physician wanted for taking off his clothes in several stores has been arrested in Oklahoma.
Montgomery County officials say authorities in Tulsa, Oklahoma, notified them Saturday that 56-year-old Steven Brazeal is in custody. Tulsa is Brazeal’s hometown.
Brazeal is identified as a registered lifetime sex offender in Oklahoma with a history of indecent exposure. Records also show he’s a former physician whose license was revoked in 2006.
He’d been wanted in and around The Woodlands, a north Houston suburb, on three arrest warrants for being naked at several businesses.
Tulsa police initially arrested Brazeal on May 23 for failing to register as a sex offender but he posted bond.
Montgomery County sheriff’s deputies say he’s now awaiting extradition to Texas.
