ERIC SCOTT RADIO — LAKE CHARLES, LA — Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Vice detectives have arrested William J. Fitzgerald, III, 42, Westlake, in connection with the sexual battery of an undercover agent that occurred in a restroom at the Civic Center on November 7.  

An undercover CPSO Vice detective was followed into the Civic Center restroom by Fitzgerald.  After exposing himself to the detective, he then grabbed the agent in a sexually inappropriate manner.  Fitzgerald fled the restroom and deputies were unable to locate him at that time.

Shortly after releasing information and pictures of the suspect to the media asking for the public’s help, CPSO received a tip regarding the identity of the man.  This tip led to the arrest of Fitzgerald on November 28.  He was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with obscenity; and sexual battery.

Judge Wilford Carter set his bond at $3,500.
