A man that has allegedly been requesting to suck the toes of women he confronts at area businesses has been arrested.
According to La Tresha Woodruff, public information officer for the Conway Police Department, Michael Wyatt, 50, of Vilonia was arrested at his home on Monday and cited with two counts of misdemeanor harassment.
Two women picked Wyatt out of a photo line up and stated that he had approached them at different businesses and started commenting on their toes.
After commenting on their feet and telling them how much he liked feet, he asked both women if he could suck on their toes.
This is not the first time Wyatt has been in trouble because of his fondness for feet. In an earlier article from the Log Cabin, Wyatt pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and criminal impersonation in Conway in December 1990.
He was arrested after pretending to be a podiatrist so he could fondle and suck a Conway woman’s toes at a woman’s clothing store. He received one year of probation, a $347 fine and one year of court-ordered therapy. His probation was later revoked when he was arrested in Cabot on similar charges.
Wyatt was convicted in Faulkner County in 1991 of terroristic threatening and was sentenced to four years in state prison. The sentence was reduced to three years and Wyatt served just more than one year in prison.
In 1999, a (edited) complainant in Fayetteville claimed Wyatt told her he would cut off her feet and suck her toes while she bled to death, though Wyatt denied making the statement.
He was arrested at that time and charged with terroristic threatening.
