Man with long history of arrests tells police he’s getting life back together

Sean Rigsby

A Lady Lake man with a long history of arrests has been ordered to appear in court after trespassing at a local service station.

Sean Rigsby, 29, has been ordered to appear June 9 in Lake County Court after repeatedly turning up at the Sunoco service station on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 in Lady Lake.

Rigsby had been banned from the service station after repeatedly stealing condiments, but not buying any other items, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department. The owner contacted police to report that Rigsby had been in the store several times on May 24.

However, Rigsby told police he was “getting his life together” and was lining up job interviews. He said he had recently paid “a lot of money” to get his driver’s license reinstated. A check revealed his license had been reinstated in February.

“Sean was very polite and cooperative when dealing with him on scene,” the police officer noted in the arrest report.

Rigsby was arrested in April at Lake Okahumpka Park. Rigsby had been arrested in 2018 after screaming at customers outside a Publix grocery store in The Villages. He was also arrested in 2015 after raiding his mother’s checkbook.
