Open lewdness alleged of man

WELLSBORO – William E. Bergquist, 48, 933 Cemetery St., Williamsport, has been accused of exposing himself to drivers on Route 287, according to police.

Two drivers allegedly told police they saw Bergquist exposing himself while sitting in his semi-trailer truck with the door open, according to an affidavit.

When interviewed by police, Bergquist said he had pulled down his pants and opened the door because his air conditioning was broken but did not admit to fully exposing himself.

Bergquist has been sent a summons to appear for a preliminary hearing before District Judge Robert L. Repard on Sept. 2 and faces charges of open lewdness and disorderly conduct.
