Explicit Sign Lands Man In Jail, Report Says

WAYNE COUNTY – A Johnston County man has been charged with a felony after an incident involving a sign. Timothy Braxton Dean, 53, of the 5000 block of Princeton Kenly Road, Kenly is charged with disseminating obscenities.

On April 20 around 10:30am, Wayne County deputies responded to a report of a man, later identified as Dean, attempting to slow traffic while driving and holding a sign. The sign allegedly displayed “an explicitly detailed sexual in nature advertisement to motorists” authorities said.

A warrant for arrest was obtained by Wayne County deputies. Dean was later served with the warrant by the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office.


  1. A felony?! Wow… I remember a saying that may resonate with all walks of life. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words (images) shall never hurt me.
