EVANSVILLE, Ind. -- A 57-year-old man is accused of passing out sexually explicit fliers that included images of two of his ex-wives.
Gordon Wayne Wright was arrested Thursday and faces preliminary charges of distributing obscene matter and invasion of privacy, both misdemeanors, Evansville police said.
Police believe Wright distributed at least 1,000 copies of the fliers, which show two nude women in sexually explicit poses. Both women were identified as ex-wives of Wright. Wright, contacted before his release through a jail representative, declined to comment.
He told police he was having a nervous breakdown and wanted to get back at one of the ex-wives pictured, according to a police affidavit. He also stated that he only placed a box of the fliers in a roadside ditch.
Vanderburgh County 911 dispatchers received about 30 complaints from people who found the fliers, while dispatchers in Posey County received at least a dozen calls. According to the affidavit, complaints were so numerous that police began advising people to destroy the fliers rather than sending an officer to retrieve them.
