A former Calhoun man wanted in Parkersburg was arrested in Grantsville Wednesday for charges filed against him one year ago in Wood County. John M. Richards, 37, was charged after he presented himself to State Police in Grantsville on another issue.

Richards was wanted on fleeing from an officer and indecent exposure. Parkersburg policeman John Corbitt chased Richards last April 27, attempting to stop him with his light and siren.

An earlier conviction related to abduction resulted in Richards being sentenced to 3-10 years in prison. Parkersburg police said Richards had also been arrested on four counts of indecent exposure un 1999, after which he was placed back in jail for 90 days after each episode.

The April, 2000 incident accused Richards of walking over to a pay phone and exposing himself to a female at Lynn and Charles Street.
