The man arrested by Franklin police Tuesday and suspected in several indecent exposure incidents is now charged in Nashville for allegedly exposing his genitals to a woman in the Winfield Park subdivision on Dec. 13.

Metro police arrested Blayne T. Tullis, 22, Wednesday morning at his Bell Road apartment in Antioch, charging him with one count of indecent exposure for the December incident. Tullis left a Metro jail after posting a $2,500 bond Wednesday.

Tullis had only shortly before bonded out of a Williamson County jail following his Tuesday arrest there where he was charged with two counts of indecent exposure and one count of stalking for cases in Franklin and Brentwood.

Franklin police developed Tullis as a suspect in an indecent exposure case in the Fieldstone Farms subdivision. Brentwood police charged Tullis with a count of indecent exposure.

Detectives from both of those police departments believe Tullis is the suspect who exposed himself while conducting a lewd act in traffic on Interstate 65 in Brentwood in the afternoon of Dec. 27. That victim provided Brentwood police with a license plate number that police said was registered to Tullis. 

According to Franklin police, on Dec. 28, Tullis followed a victim and her teenage daughter to their home Sterling Park Terrace home where he then allegedly pulled into their driveway, opened his car door and exposed himself to the woman while engaging in a lewd act.

Detectives say they have linked those cases to three other incidents that occurred in October when Tullis is suspected of following a woman walking her baby in The Meadows subdivision off of Del Rio Pike in Franklin. On the third encounter with her Tullis allegedly exposed himself to that victim in similar fashion as in the other cases.

Tullis was employed by the city of Franklin Parks Department as a seasonal employee starting in June 2010 and was hired full time in November 2011. Tullis, however, was not on duty and was in his personal vehicle when the incidents occurred. He was fired Tuesday afternoon.

Tullis is due in a Williamson County court next week to answer those charges.

Sadly, nothing will happen to this joker.

He bonds out of Williamson Co. and then is arrested in Metro for the same thing and bonds out? Sounds like he needs a bigger bond set. And he definitely has a problem.

With no previous convictions what can they do? It's in Casey Moreland court and since he implicated himself perhaps he will be open for some type of treatment. It's odd in that with 99.9% of these guys they never admit to anything-never. They don't consider it wrong. Maybe that is a good sign.
The statue for this is as bizarre as the dudes that commit it.
"Suspect reasonably expected that the act would be noticed by someone"

What is that supposed to mean?
