Alleged Davie Cinemark Flasher Arrested
DAVIE (CBSMiami.com) – A Pembroke Pines man has been arrested for allegedly exposing himself in and around the Davie Cinemark movie theater.
Christopher Thompson, 36, was arrested at his home Thursday night.
He was given $145,000 bond on charges of indecent exposure, impersonating a police officer, battery and false imprisonment.
In April, investigators say Thompson stopped a boy and girl who had been kissing inside the Cinemark Theater. He flashed a badge and told the girl she was in trouble for her behavior. Investigators say he took her into the theater and exposed himself and made sexual advances.
He allegedly obtained the girl’s phone number from her cell phone and then called her house pretending to be a pizza deliveryman and asked for her address. That’s how police say they caught up with him.
Authorities tell CBS4 News that there was a similar incident the month before at the same theater.
“Wow, it’s a shock,” said Glenn Frankline, Thompson’s neighbor. “He didn’t seem like the type. He has two little girls.”
In court, Thompson’s attorney said he is on worker’s compensation after getting injured in his job as a Miami-Dade County sanitation worker.
When the judge asked Thompson who will help with his bond, he answered, “I’m gonna ask my parents.”
