Woman arrested for indecent exposure at City park


GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Kimberly Joyce White, 31, was arrested yesterday morning and charged with indecent exposure and urinating in public after allegedly taking her clothes off in a City park.

At about 9:20 a.m. yesterday, a Gainesville Police Department officer responded to a call at Sharmie Ffar Park, 321 NW 10th Street, about a woman who had taken her clothes off and urinated in front of the caller’s 2-year-old son. The caller said that White had urinated twice at the park.

White has five misdemeanor convictions (one violent); she was arrested in 2022 for brandishing a knife at GRACE Marketplace and was trespassed from GRACE, but the charges were dropped a few weeks later. Bail information is unavailable.

Articles about arrests are based on reports from law enforcement agencies. The charges listed are taken from the arrest report and/or court records and are only accusations. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. 

  • Charges dropped again? Maybe they should increase the time for filing paperwork to 80 days. If Phileas can go around the world in 80 days, the SAO should be able to walk papers to the courthouse in that amount of time.

    On the other hand, they could let her use Poe’s porch as a litter box.

  • We don’t need any more vagrants coming from everywhere to GNV to set up shop…there’s been a bum living in the parking lot at Wells Fargo
    Downtown on Main near University Ave for months…you would think the bank would call the cops and have them tell him to “move-on”…instead, I’m thinking about finding a new bank. there’s been like 5 or 6 shooting homicides within a few blocks of that bank over the last few years…the cops need to make sure downtown is safe for people going to that area.

    • It’s the city managers fault….she doesn’t know how to manage the city…she’s not the best qualified.
      She was hired for DEI. Desantis & the State of Florida need to come in like a swat team and take control of the city & GRU because of their mismanagement.

      • Bielarski should write a book:

        “How to bankrupt a city and it’s Utility by being woke and trying to stop climate change”

  • Sadly, that city park is next to the Wilhelmina Johnson community center (HQ to the Cultural Arts Coalition) but has been run over by drug damaged vagrants, mostly mentally ill on SSI. It’s in a traditionally AA neighborhood being gentrified by luxury student apts. Once vibrant 5th Avenue was burnt in 1968 race riots and the middle class fled. Sad.
