Spokane Valley deputies arrest man who allegedly trespassed, showed person his buttocks

Spokane Valley deputies arrested a man who allegedly trespassed and showed his buttocks to a laundromat employee Tuesday morning.

Deputies initially responded to a weapons call at the Hico Mart Laundromat on the 9200 block of East Sprague Avenue at about 9:30 a.m., according to a news release.

The employee who called the police said a man, later identified as David B. P. Buswell, 39, was sleeping in the laundromat and had previously trespassed there, according to a news release.

The employee said Buswell picked up a piece of rebar and swung it around, according to a news release. When the employee told him to put the rebar down, he exposed his bare buttocks to her and walked away.

Deputies found Buswell nearby and found he had an active misdemeanor warrant, according to a news release.

He was booked into Spokane County Jail on charges of indecent exposure and first-degree trespass, according to jail records. His bail was set at $750.
