HERMON, Maine — A Hermon man was given a disorderly conduct warning Tuesday night after allegedly exposing his buttocks to motorists passing by his Route 2 home.

The warning was issued to Stephen Thibodeau, 52, after Penobscot County sheriff’s deputies were called to his home the second time within about an hour.

When police arrived the first time they were called out Tuesday night, Thibodeau was clad in pajama bottoms, Deputy Jay Hallett said.

“His buttocks were definitely exposed. He was wiggling them at us when we pulled in,” Hallett said, adding that Thibodeau was “very intoxicated at the time.” Thibodeau also had a small bonfire going and there were empty beer cans strewn around his yard, Hallett said.

“I told him to pull up his drawers and I warned him to keep his clothes on,” Hallett said.

The second time, however, resulting in the warning, he said. Hallett said Thibodeau also offered him a pornographic magazine from his collection when he went to Thibodeau’s residence the second time.

According to Hallett, Tuesday’s events were not unusual for Thibodeau. He said he has been dealing with them since he was hired as one of Hermon’s deputies in 2004.

“It happens a couple of times every summer, when the weather starts to warm up,” Hallett said. “A lot of times he’s on the roof. He’s pretty harmless for the most part.”

Thibodeau, however, has been charged with indecent conduct only once. That was in 2004, when he was fined $200 and sentenced to three days in jail.

Hallett said that charge was filed after Thibodeau was found outside his home fully naked and striking a bodybuilder pose.
