Exposure counts filed on ex-doctor

TULSA - Three felony counts of indecent exposure were filed Friday in Tulsa County District Court against a former Tennessee physician now living in Foyil.

Steven Dale Brazeal, 44, was charged in connection with three incidents in Broken Arrow, authorities said.

A felony charge of eluding police also was filed Friday against Brazeal, Tulsa County district attorney's spokeswoman Susan Witt said.

Brazeal is believed to be connected to a series of indecent exposure incidents in six cities in all, including Oklahoma City, Norman, Warr Acres, Nichols Hills and The Village, police said. More than a dozen reports have been taken since July 6, in which witnesses said a man matching Brazeal's description exposed himself.

Brazeal was not in custody Friday evening, but officers were attempting to serve warrants for his arrest, Broken Arrow police Maj. Mark Irwin said.

Broken Arrow police identified Brazeal after two teenage girls told them Wednesday a man exposed himself outside an apartment complex, Irwin said. Shortly after the girls' report, an officer who responded stopped a car driven by Brazeal.

Brazeal handed the officer a Tennessee driver's license before speeding off and eluding authorities, police said.

Brazeal is a 1988 University of Oklahoma graduate who earned a bachelor of science degree, spokeswoman Catherine Bishop said. Brazeal earned a medical degree in 1992 from OU, completing his last two years of work at the Tulsa campus.
