Naked Moped Rider Arrested on Main Street

web posted July 24, 2013

EDGEFIELD An unusual call went out to law enforcement in and around Edgefield to be on the lookout for an unknown white male driving a moped naked around town just before 1 am Tuesday. An Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputy spotted the man on his moped on Main Street and conducted a traffic stop at Mims Street. When the deputy approached the driver, Jeffery Thomas Griffis, 54, of Jeter Street, he was completely naked.

When the deputy asked Griffis for his identification he said he did not have it on him.

The deputy asked Griffis  why he was riding around naked. According to an incident report, Griffis said he was just "trying to air out and he was hot".

The deputy advised Griffis he was under arrest for indecent exposure and was transported to the Edgefield County Detention Center for booking. His moped was towed from the scene.

Griffis is currently still being held at this time on a $3,000 cash bond, according to online court records.

A person doing such, "upon conviction, must be fined in the discretion of the court or imprisoned not more than three years, or both," according to the code of laws (16-15-130).

Edgefield Police Chief Ronnie Carter says his office receives a number of complaints of Griffis standing in the roadway in front of his house performing a sex act on himself, however; by the time officers arrive he is gone. "We haven't been able to catch him," Carter said.
