Former S.A. clergyman arrested on indecent exposure charges

A priest was arrested in Olmos Park on allegations of indecent exposure Wednesday.

Rocky Grimard, 59, was arrested in Olmos Park.

According to the San Antonio Police Department, an on-duty park police officer in plain clothes was patrolling the park. The suspect approached the officer and made multiple sexual advances on the officer, both verbal and physical, according to police. The officer identified himself as a peace officer and the suspect was taken into custody.

SAPD would not confirm the name of the suspect until he was formally magistrated. The district clerk's office confirms the man in the report is Grimard.

Grimard previously served as the director of the Oblate Renewal Center at Oblate School of Theology, according to the school. The school confirms he left two years ago and now works as at Lebh Shomea House of Prayer, a religious retreat center, in Sarita, Texas.

According to county sources, Grimard currently serves as a chaplain for a local law enforcement agency.
