A Waycross man was arrested Tuesday after Ware County deputies reviewed video evidence depicting him attempting to batter a woman sexually, said Ware County Sheriff’s Lt. Neil Skerratt.
Roy Lee Butler, 52, of the 500 block of Cate Drive, is charged with attempted sexual battery and felony false imprisonment, said Skerratt.
Unbeknownst to Butler, the victim had set up a video camera prior to the attack, he said.
“There was a dispute between two people, and deputies spoke with the woman who reported that her landlord had been to her place several times acting in an obscene way,” said Skerratt. “What the man did not know was that the woman was videoing his actions. Deputies and detectives watched the video and saw him on top of her with her yelling numerous times to ‘get off!’ and he refused (to do so).”
Butler was being held in the Ware County jail.
