A Waffle House employee who was caught on video pleasuring himself turned himself in Monday afternoon to the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.
Emanuel DeWayne Williams Sr., has been charged with public indecency, probation violation and violation of the sex-offenders registry, according to Lt. Sean DeFoe.
Williams did not have any restrictions as far as being around people, but Williams failed to register his Waffle House employment with the sheriff’s office, DeFoe said.
Williams was fired from Waffle House on Pio Nono Avenue last week after a viral Facebook video, recorded by another employee, showed him pleasuring himself.
The second employee, according to the original incident report, said she and Williams were the only two in the restaurant around lunchtime. Williams told the second employee he was about to masturbate. The female employee pulled out her phone to record because she didn’t believe him, the report states. The video “somehow” ended up on Facebook, the employee stated in the report.
She stated in the report “as she was recording him, she was telling him the whole time that she was recording him and he was a pervert. She stated that he responded by saying he wasn’t a pervert; he was just a ‘freak.'”
According to the Sex Offenders Registry, he registered in 2009 for a rape conviction.
A warrant for his arrest was sought last week.
