Man accused of scaring children at park has the mugshot to prove it

You’re looking at Andre Houston, a 35-year-old man from Lexington who was arrested this weekend after scaring children at Charles Young Park along Midland Avenue. According to police, Houston was chasing and grabbing children, even following some into the bathroom, creating quite the stir outside a large family reunion.

Apparently Houston had already been barred from Charles Young Park twice last week and after his arrest, police say they found a crack pipe hidden in his mouth. He was charged with criminal trespassing and drug charges, making this the tenth time he’s faced felony charges in the past 10 years.

Remember kids, crack is whack.

    I’m not a raging hard ass who doesn’t believe in rehabilitation, but how is this dude just freely running amok after he’s been picked up 10 times on felony charges? did nothing stick to him other than the dirt on his face? Again – not trying to be one of those “lock up drug offender” guys, but a pattern is a pattern and this is one of those that if he were to commit a violent act everyone would blame the courts for him being on the street in the first place.

    This guy is sick. And if you can’t tell from the look on his face that he is crying out for help you don’t have a compassionate bone in your body. There is no way this should be the first thing I see on KY Sports radio when I enter the site. I like some of the political commentary but since when did it become cool to ridicule those who are in serious need of help

      Maybe you should have came to ksr earlier so it wouldn’t have been the first thing you saw. Would you be so tore up if it was the second thing you saw?

      I Def don’t see him crying out for help with that face. That face looks a little smug to me.

    At this point he should be charged as a persistent felony offender, which will add several years to his sentence. He should gotten the $hit beat out of him also

    He looks like he’s from a remake of “The Life of Bryan”.

    This guy has been walking the streets begging for money for years, he wears coats in ninety degree weather. About five years ago when he wasn’t as bad as he is now, he used to walk up and say ,” I havent seen you in a long time, what you been up to?” , and then ask for money. Of course I never knew him in the first place.I’m shocked he’s still living.

    This guy witnessed his brothers head get blown off with a shotgun some years back. When the police got to the scene he was setting on the floor in the house trying to put pieces of his brain back in his head. The kid is in need of help but instead of giving him the help he needs we throw him in jail and back on the street. So keep on judging guys cause you will never know a man until you walk a mile in his shoes.

    Yes, he needs to be off the streets. He is a danger to others. He has broken the law and could be imprisoned. Rightfully so. A mandatory mental health stay may be a better and more humane option for him and society. If that doesn’t work, then incarceration.

    Henry Earl never looked that bad…what ever happened to him? Police quit posting his mugshots and updates long time ago when he was arrested.

    This article should read this is Andre Houston a man who is suffering from debilitating mental illness. Who when he was a teenager witness his older brother being shot point blank range in the head with a shotgun and that he thought he could save him by trying to put his deceased brothers brain matter back into his gapping skull.

    Andre is a fixture in the community everyone treats him with kindness because most know his pain. He is not a bad guy, but tell me how would you deal with it? I pray that Andre gets the help that he so deserve.
