TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - A 49-year-old man from Ottawa has been arrested for public nudity.

According to the Shawnee Co. Dept. of Correction’s daily booking report, David Earl Lawver, 49, was booked into custody at 10:15 a.m. on Monday, May 9th.

Topeka Police say officers were called to the Walmart Supercenter at 1301 SW 37th St. on reports of an unwanted subject.

Officials say Lawver was told to leave, but instead exposed himself to the officers.

According to court records, this isn’t Lawver’s first run-in with the law. At the time of his arrest, Lawver was out on bond for two felony charges of Criminal Damage to Property. He has a Criminal Assignment Docket hearing in Shawnee Co. Dist. Court in that case on June 1, 2022.

Lawver was being held on $500 bond.
