Police: Man Had Billboard of Topless Woman on Car Outside Putnam County Courthouse
Police say a local man had a billboard on top of his car that displayed large photos of a topless woman with no bra on and both breasts exposed.
The Putnam County Sheriff's Office reports that on October 15, at approximately 9:46 a.m., Deputies were dispatched to the Putnam County Court House, located at 20 County Center in the Town of Carmel, for a report of a billboard on top of a vehicle, which was displaying pictures of a topless woman.
Upon his arrival, Deputy Boscia said he observed a white Dodge SUV, with a billboard attached to it, displaying, among other things, three large photos of a woman with no shirt, no bra and both breasts entirely exposed.
The vehicle’s owner, 66-year-old Douglas D. Demasi, of Hopewell Junction, who admitted putting the billboard up, arrived at the courthouse and was taken into custody without incident.
He was charged with one count of Public Display of Offensive Sexual Material. Demasi was processed at the Sheriff’s Office and released on his own recognizance with an appearance ticket ordering him to appear in the Town of Carmel Court at a later date.
