Man accused of exposing himself at kids' bus stops

- Polk County deputies arrested a man they say was exposing himself to children at school bus stops.

Buck Johnson, 35, faces multiple charges including lewd exhibition, stalking, and drug possession. Deputies said he exposed himself to at least eight young girls, one of them 11-years-old, and two others were young women. 

Each time, deputies said, he called them over to his truck while showing them what appeared to be pornography on his cell phone.

The father of two victims, 11- and 12-years old, spoke to FOX 13 News about the suspect. 

"He is sick and he needs help. Locked up first, then needs some help," he said.

Meanwhile, police said it was likely Johnson's behavior would have escalated, had he not been caught. 

"They show a picture and it's not enough. They don't get their jollies that the normally like to get. Then they take it to the next level," Winter Haven Police Chief Charlie Bird said.

Johnson was arrested at his home in Winter Haven.

During questioning, deputies say, he confessed and blamed meth for altering his mind so that he didn't realize what he was doing.
