FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Authorities in Cumberland County have arrested a man who allegedly exposed himself to employees and visitors of the Cumberland County Courthouse and the law enforcement center.

Investigators said Marcus Chadwick Waddell, 31, of Fayetteville, came to the Law Enforcement Center Sept. 7 and allegedly attempted to expose himself to a female deputy. The victim said she did not see Waddell expose himself. Waddell was released and told not to return to the law enforcement center unless he had business to attend there.

The next day, Waddell returned to the law enforcement center and accosted an assistant district attorney. The victim told deputies Waddell exposed his private parts to her. However, deputies could not locate Waddell.

On Sept. 12, deputies who had been alerted of Waddell's activities were patrolling the area when they noticed Waddell approach a glass front door of the law enforcement center. Authorities believe he was about to expose himself when he saw a deputy in the area. Waddell began to run and was captured near the premises following a foot chase.

Waddell is charged with indecent exposure; resist, delay and obstruction of a law enforcement officer; and second-degree trespassing. He has since been released from jail on $1,500 bond.
