A 25-year-old Wellington man was arrested early Thursday morning, accused of masturbating in the parking lot of a convenience store on Ehrlich Road.
Alexander Marley Cheatham was charged with exposure of sexual organs. He remained in jail Thursday afternoon. Bail was set at $500 on the charge, a first-degree misdemeanor.
Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputies said a witness saw a man masburbating in the front seat of a blue Nissan Maxima in the parking lot of a Circle K store, 5299 Ehrlich Road, around 4:30 a.m., in plain view of the public.
When a deputy arrived, he found Cheatham in the vehicle, naked from the waist down. Cheatham was arrested without incident.
