LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- In less than a month, a Louisville man has been arrested three times. He has been accused of blocking the path of a fire truck and threatening to blow up a building. Now 31-year-old Alejandro Rodriguez is accused of exposing himself to Public Works officials.

The latest incident happened just before 2 a.m. Wednesday at Thornton's on Seventh Street Road. According to the arrest report, store employees asked Rodriguez to leave "due to being intoxicated and a nuisance."

Rodriguez did leave, but police say he stopped near Public Works employees who were repairing the road and exposed himself, "pulling his pants down and shaking his genitals at them."

Rodriguez then returned to the store to try to purchase more alcohol and store employees called police.

Police decided that, because of his intoxicated state, Rodriguez was a danger to himself and others so he was taken to jail.

Rodriguez is charged with public intoxication, criminal trespassing and indecent exposure. This is the third time in three weeks that Rodriguez was arrested for public intoxication: he was arrested on Aug. 25 after threatening to blow up a building and on Aug. 18 for blocking a fire truck at an intersection by dancing in front of it while making obscene gestures at firefighters.
