Man charged with assaulting officer, indecent exposure

RICHMOND — A Tyner man was charged with indecent exposure and assaulting a police officer Saturday following a shoplifting incident at Meijer.

Kevin J. Coldiron, 39, also was charged with second-degree robbery, first-degree criminal trespassing, second-degree disorderly conduct and public intoxication.

Richmond police were called to Meijer at 4:28 p.m. after receiving a report that a shoplifting suspect had fled the store, according to the report.

An employee told the officers that a man, later identified as Coldiron, was seen in the shoe department wearing no shoes. Coldiron removed a pair of boots from a box and hid the box, the report stated.

Next, the employee said, he went to the clothing section and donned a black hoodie after removing the price tag.

Coldiron was confronted by employees near the exit. The man removed the hoodie and boots, along with his blue jeans, socks and a hat he also had stolen, according to the RPD.

Coldiron then charged one of the employees, grabbed him by the shirt and pushed him into the entrance door until the door popped open. He fled on foot wearing only boxer shorts, according to the report.

Police soon received a report that Coldiron was at a home in the 1100 block of Goggins Lane. When they arrived, they reported finding him standing in the front yard with his boxers ripped and his genitals exposed.

The officers also reported he was under the influence of an intoxicant.

“It would later be learned that Coldiron had unlawfully entered the residence where he was found and was confronted in the kitchen by the residents, who promptly escorted him and his exposed genitals from their residence,” the report stated.

After Coldiron was placed in a police cruiser, he began banging his head against the protective screen inside the vehicle, the RPD reported. The officers tried to intervene, but Coldiron allegedly kicked one of the officers in the chest twice.
