A Nowata man who was arrested earlier this week from an incident at the Bartlesville Public Library faced his first court hearing.  John Ewing Sharp The Fourth is charged with sexual battery.  According to a court affidavit, a woman told Bartlesville Police that the suspect approached her, started a conversation, shook her hand, and grabbed her bottom.  While being questioned, Sharp told the police that he felt the woman was paying attention to him.  Reportedly, the suspect felt like he knew the woman from somewhere and felt the victim was flirting with him.  Sharp's next court date is July 25th.  Bond was set at $50,000.
