Comments Off on Kareem Walker, 32, pulls down pants, fights with Charleston police officers during encounter over loud music; Also charged with possession of Methamphetamine

Kareem WalkerA North Charleston man faces drug and indecent exposure charges after police were drawn to his idling car by curse-filled music pumping out its speakers Monday while a 5-year-old boy sat in the back seat, authorities said.

Officers said Kareem Walker, 32, of Sorentrue Avenue initially told them he was just watching the car for his girlfriend when they approached him in the parking lot of Cheap Way gas on Dorchester Road at 10:30 a.m. After claiming his girlfriend was having a difficult time in the bathroom, Walker eventually acknowledged he had driven the vehicle there, police said.

A search of the car produced a digital scale sprinkled with white powder which Walker insisted was salt, according to an incident report. From there, police said, the episode played out this way:

Walker kept trying to go back into the store, saying he needed to buy juice. When officers refused to let him go, he became irate, insisted he didn’t have anything on him and then dropped his pants to show them, exposing his private parts.

An officer tried to put cuffs on Walker to arrest him for indecent exposure, but he wrestled with police until confronted with a Taser stun gun.

With the aid of store surveillance video, police determined that Walker had discarded 13 bags containing 6.8 grams of methamphetamine inside the business.

In addition to the exposure count, police charged Walker with possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, resisting arrest, leaving a vehicle unattended and violating a loud noise ordinance.

The car and the boy were turned over to the child’s grandmother as police took Walker to the Charleston County jail.
