Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Lufkin man on outstanding warrants and drug charges

NCSO deputies were dispatched to the Nacalina subdivision in Etoile on April 14, after a man, later identified as Michael Wesley Skelton, was seen engaged in a lewd act along the shoreline of Sam Rayburn Reservoir.

Skelton, 64, was confronted by the complainant, who was on a fishing trip, and tried to hide behind a camouflage tarp.

Deputies were transported to Skelton’s location – a place he’d trespassed on another person’s property to access – by private boat and found him dressed in women’s underwear and adamantly denying anything was going on.

Skelton’s identity was confirmed, and deputies determined he had outstanding warrants for failure to appear and release of surety, both of which are state-jail felonies.

A search of Skelton’s personal belongings at the scene revealed 4.7 grams of methamphetamine and a small amount of marijuana. Skelton was additionally charged with a second-degree felony for the methamphetamine, and was booked into the county jail, where he is currently incarcerated.

He was provided with gender-appropriate undergarments courtesy of Nacogdoches County taxpayers.
