Then in 2004, he was arrested for walking around Walmart on CoorsBoulevard near Interstate 40 for a half hour, with his penis hanging out of his pants. He was convicted and put on probation.
Last September on a bosque trail in the North Valley, a female jogger told police Garcia exposed himself to her. Garcia told police he was urinating.
He is due in court Friday morning where prosecutors will seek to keep him locked up, saying he is a flight risk and a danger to society.
