An escaped inmate from Iowa caught walking around McAlester naked

McALESTER — An escaped inmate from Iowa was picked up by McAlester police after he was reported to be walking around town naked.

David William Allison, 49, of Des Moines, Iowa, was charged June 7 in Pittsburg County District Court with lewd exhibition of person, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and misdemeanor unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

On June 6, McAlester police officer Kevin Bishop was dispatched to “the area in front of Kentucky Fried Chicken on a report of a male subject walking around the center median with no clothes on,” a police affidavit alleges. When asked why he wasn’t wearing clothes, Allison allegedly told police “he was paranoid and he thought that someone was following him,” the affidavit states. “He then told officers that since he could not get ahold of the police department, he decided to walk around naked in public to get them to come to him.”

Police asked Allison to put his clothes back on, which he had been allegedly carrying in his hands, and then searched him for narcotics. Allison allegedly said “he had smoked weed about an hour before officers came into contact with him,” the affidavit states. After searching him, police found a clear plastic baggy with methamphetamine in it and a syringe, the affidavit alleges.

After Allison was arrested and taken to the Pittsburg County jail, police were informed that Allison was an escapee from the Iowa Department of Corrections, the affidavit alleges.

If convicted, Allison is facing up to life in prison. He is due back in court June 14 at 9 a.m. He is being held at the Pittsburg County jail in lieu of a $250,000 bond and was unavailable for comment when this article was prepared for publication.
