Charles Scott of North Lauderdale, Florida was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly made inappropriate comments to minor girls who were waiting for a school bus, news sources report. Scott, 29, was booked into the Broward County Main Jail on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence. A county judge ordered that Scott be held without bail. It is unclear whether Scott has hired legal representation.
Reports indicate this is not Scott’s initial arrest. Scott is reportedly facing battery charges from another case. The details of that case were not available at press time. It is unclear whether he has any other prior arrests. In court, Scott’s mother reportedly said that Scott takes medication for an unknown ailment, but said he had not been taking it recently. There is no indication that Scott has ever faced sexual charges of any kind.
This latest incident happened earlier this week, sources say. While the complete details were not available at press time, reports say Scott was near a public school bus stop when he threatened to rape some female students who were waiting for their bus. It does not appear as though Schott actually harmed any of the children. Police were soon called to the scene.
When confronted by officers later on, Scott allegedly refused to cooperate. During his arrest, Scott allegedly seized of one of the officer’s hands. Another officer reportedly stepped in and brought the struggle to a stop. Scott’s mugshot shows him with several bruises and scrapes on his face, though it not clear whether he sustained the injuries during the scuffle with the officers.
South Florida is home to all sorts of crimes. Earlier this year, Marion County resident Karen Worley Drake was arrested after she allegedly parked her car, which she was living in, in a road and fell asleep, sources report. Drake, 51, was booked into the county jail on charges stemming from the incident. It is unclear whether she qualified for bail or hired legal aid.
According to reports, Drake told police she had been living out of the car, a 2009 Hyundai, ever since she was thrown out of her residence. Drake had purportedly had a few drinks, wet herself, and taken her pants and underwear off before parking in the road and falling asleep. She was reportedly accompanied by her dog and her belongings, which were all in the car.
On a Sunday, someone called police to say they saw a 2009 Hyundai with no lights parked along Dunnellon Road, sources indicate. Police responded to the scene, found the car, and found Drake sleeping in the driver’s seat. Officers knocked on the windows for “several minutes” before Drake opened the door, reports say.
When Drake opened the door of the vehicle, officers realized she was unclothed from the waist down and that her vehicle carried the strong scent of alcohol, reports say. Drake allegedly had several open containers in her vehicle, including wine.
