The Monterey County District Attorney’s Office filed an indecent exposure charge Friday against recently retired Pacific Grove police Capt. Bill Kennedy.
Chief Assistant District Attorney Terry Spitz said the misdemeanor charge stemmed from an incident in which Kennedy, 57, allegedly exposed himself in the parking lot of The Crossroads Shopping Village in Carmel on Aug. 10.
Spitz would not provide additional details but other law enforcement officials said two women called the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office that day to report a man masturbating in the parking lot. The man was gone when deputies arrived, but the women reportedly provided the license number of the man’s car. Kennedy was questioned later at his home in Pacific Grove.
