ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Although he's been warned to stay away from the Liberty Expressway bridge over Slappey Boulevard, a homeless man says he has no where else to go.

Wednesday, we found 62-year old Colin Bailey back under the bridge, even though a judge ordered him to stay away. He was arrested nearly three weeks ago and charged with prohibited camping and urinating in public, both misdemeanors. Bailey told us this is the only shelter he can find.

"Every time some body rides by here, and sees something they're going to call and complain to the police station, they rag me day and night. I'm not breaking into no banks or robbing nobody, I'm just trying to live, honey," said Colin Bailey.

Code enforcement told us they checked the area Monday, and it was clean. Bailey told us he tries to keep the few items he has out of public view. He also told us Albany Police continue to check on him and ask him to leave, but he plans to stay.
