A man from Lakeland, Florida was arrested by undercover detectives after allegedly committing a lewd act at Saddle Creek Park, says WFLA.
69-year-old Donald Johnson reportedly touched himself inappropriately and solicited sex from an undercover male detective to engage in a lewd act in the park on November 30th.
Sheriff Grady Judd commented on the arrest, saying, "This is completely unacceptable. Polk County parks are places where families and children go to enjoy the outdoors – they should never have to encounter disgusting acts like these. We will continue to patrol our public parks and to arrest people who publicly engage in lewd activity."
Johnson has been banned from all parks in the county for 10 years and was charged with offering to commit a lewd act, which is considered a misdemeanor.
Under state law, Johnson could be placed in jail for up to 60 days or be fined $500 for breaking the trespass order. He was released from jail on a $250 bond.
