A Johnson County dentist is charged for doing something lewd while driving.
The woman wants people to know about a man she said exposed himself to her in her Olathe, KS, neighborhood. The man she's talking about is a dentist. Now he's charged with lewd and lascivious conduct, and it was later found out he had been fired from his job after news of the charges.
"On Tuesday night my 3-year-old son and I were out for a jog," the woman, who wished to not have her identity revealed, said.
The woman said she was in an Olathe neighborhood near West 161st Street and South Sunset.
"I saw a silver Honda circling us several times. I thought the guy was lost. Pretty standard in a confusing neighborhood like this," the woman said.
Circling around her, she said was Dr. Wylie Bell.
"I was three houses down from mine, the guy pulls over to the curb, honks his horn," the woman said.
She said what happened next was inexcusable. Bell, a dentist at the time with Arbor Creek Dentistry in Olathe, allegedly exposed himself. When he saw that she wasn't happy about what had just happened, Bell drove off.
"He peeled off and I was able to get his plates, I called the cops and they tracked him down about 45 minutes later," the woman said.
Now Bell is charged with lewd and lascivious conduct, a misdemeanor.
When a KCTV5 crew went to the address listed for Bell, a silver Honda matching the woman's description was parked outside.
"And I learned that he was a professional man. This isn't something you'd expect in a community like this. This isn't something you'd expect with a profession where you're trusting him with your children. It's disgusting," the woman said.
The woman has since turned information about the incident to the Board of Dentistry. The case has been turned over to Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe, but he would not comment specifically on the case.
KCTV5 also tried to contact Bell, but were turned away at his door. His next court appearance is later this month.
