HARRIS COUNTY, Texas - A man has been arrested for allegedly wearing a tutu and exposing himself to people in north Harris County and deputies said it may not be the only case.

According to Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Ron Hickman, deputies responded to a call Wednesday in the 19700 block of the North Freeway after several women reported a man walked up to a business in a tutu and exposed his genitals and buttocks to them. One of the witnesses recorded the incident on video.

Deputies said they were able to retrieve a license plate from the suspect's truck.

Witnesses identified the suspect from a photo array, deputies said.

Richard Staples, of Huntsville, was charged with indecent exposure. Staples, 51, was arrested Friday.

"We do believe Mr. Staples is a suspect in several other indecent exposure cases in our area," said Asst. Chief Mark Herman. "Constable investigators have other cases that lead us in the direction of the same suspect in this case."

His bond was set at $1,000.
