    Motorcycle legend Douglas Henry, 45, of Torrington, was arrested in Farmington on Tuesday, accused of exposing himself to two female construction workers.

    Henry, of Guerdat Road, was arrested at 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, accused of exposing his penis to two female construction workers at a construction job on Route 4 in Farmington.

    His vehicle was stopped in Harwinton, and Farmington officers responded and interviewed Henry, who they said admitted to the act.

    Henry, a Hall of Fame cyclist, became paralyzed from the waist down in a Supermoto crash in March 2007.

    In 2010, he competed in his first race since the crash -- the Adaptive SnoCross race at the Winter XGames in Colorado in January, according to ESPN.

    He competed in the adaptive SMB SnoCross during the X Games in Aspen and came in second, according to his athlete page on ESPN's X Games Web site.

    In November 2010, fire tore through his Torrington home, leaving nothing behind than a chimney.

    Henry was issued a misdemeanor summons for public indecency and released on a $2,500.00 non-surety bond.
