We received the following press release from Gary Bailey’s attorney¿
On February 10, 2006, and unfortunate misunderstanding caused Gary Bailey to be arrested as to an allegation of exposure at a local Daytona Beach restaurant. Initial allegations were proven wrong in that no time whatsoever did a little girl see anything, and he was not charged with lewd and lascivious conduct. Furthermore, and elderly couple was exposed to this incident for a brief moment and this was the extent of this entire scenario. Let’s hope that Gary Bailey continues to enjoy an excellent reputation in the motocross motorcycle industry while residing and operating his motocross school in the State of Virginia. Gary continues to emphatically deny any intentional wrongdoing, but does admit that he was fatigued from a fourteen hour drive in a tractor trailer whereby he was wearing a bathing suit type shorts that basically caused him to briefly expose himself for no more than a few seconds while eating and talking on his cell phone, and immediately apologized to the offended people. However, law enforcement chose to over exaggerate this matter and proceed forward with criminal prosecution. Because Florida is a strict liability State as to these types of actions, Mr. Bailey will be left no choice but to resolve this case with a simple probationary type sentence. It is his sincere regret to all those who may have been offended by this unintentional incident and wishes to assure the motocross industry that he will continue to be a major force in maintaining the high level of intensity and professionalism that the sport continues to enjoy.
