28 arrests over weekend

MOULTRIE — Law enforcement agencies in the county racked up 28 arrests over the weekend, including a number of DUI charges and one man accused of strolling naked through downtown Moultrie.

In the latter case, Elbernezer Walker was arrested after police received reports of a nude man at the post office in Moultrie and a short time later at a business across the street from the courthouse.

Police reports said that Walker was walking along the street “without a stitch of clothes on.”

Other witnesses reported that Walker was wearing a pair white socks.

Walker, 40, 3121 Third St. S.W., was booked on charges of public indecency and probation violation.

Walker was arrested on April 23 on charges of driving under the influence, drug possession and other traffic violations after police received reports of a truck circling in northwest Moultrie possibly while in possession of drugs. At the time, a glass pipe and suspected crack cocaine was found in the vehicle with Walker.
