A 41-year-old Gastonia man faces a charge of indecent liberties with a child for allegedly asking a 13-year-old "to be his girlfriend and wife," and then touching her inappropriately.
Alan Lydell Meadows of 943 Mobile Lane allegedly called the girl over to his yard Tuesday when he began speaking with her. He then began touching her, and according to a warrant affidavit, Meadows' girlfriend witnessed the incident.
"Alan Meadows then started rubbing her head and she asked him to stop. Alan then squatted down and smelled her butt and started spanking her bottom," Gastonia Police Officer J.W. Hughes wrote in the warrant affidavit.
Meadows was booked into Gaston County Jail under a $5,000 bond.
