Fingerprint Grope

APRIL 19--While being booked for causing a disturbance at a bar, a Florida Man rubbed the buttocks of a fingerprint technician, according to a police report which notes that the suspect said he pawed the female victim because “she was sexy.”

Jack Dylan Evans, 44, was arrested Wednesday afternoon for disorderly conduct at the Down the Hatch bar in Pinellas Park. Cops say Evans had been yelling obscenities in the bar and told the owner he wanted to have sex with her.

After police arrived at the business, Evans, who lives in Pinellas Park, “continued to make crude sexual comments.”

Pictured at right, Evans was subsequently transported to the Pinellas County jail, where he was booked on the misdemeanor charge, which carried a $250 bond.

As Evans was being fingerprinted by technician Dena Pham, he allegedly “reached with his left hand down to the victim’s right buttocks area and rubbed the area.” Pham identified Evans “as the person who battered her,” and the incident was recorded by a surveillance camera, according to a criminal complaint.

Evans reportedly “stated that he touched the victim because he thought she was sexy.”

A second charge--for battery on a jail employee--was filed against Evans. That count carries a $5000 bond.

Evans, who has twice this year been convicted of trespassing, has been ordered to stay away from Down the Hatch and its proprietor. (1 page)
