A Hopkinsville man was arrested twice in a period of six and a half hours Friday night and early Saturday morning.
Hopkinsville Police Officer Robert Stokes was called to the Salvation Army on East Seventh Street the first time Friday when 52-year old Cleveland Joseph Chavis of Hopkinsville was allegedly in violation of a criminal trespass warning.
Officer Stokes reminded Chavis that he wasn’t supposed to be there and Chavis reportedly left. Twenty minutes later, HPD was called back to the scene when Chavis returned and Officer Stokes charged him with criminal trespass and took him to the Christian County Jail.
Chavis was out of jail by 4:30 when he was scene for a third time at the Salvation Army—this time allegedly walking on East Seventh completely nude. Officer Stokes writes on the report that he told Chavis to put his clothes on several times before his request was met.
Chavis was arrested again and charged with indecent exposure and remains in the Christian County Jail.
