PUNTA GORDA, FL. - A North Fort Myers man was arrested after a deputy saw him exposing himself at a Punta Gorda area park.

On Wednesday shortly after 11 a.m., a deputy on patrol drove through the area of the Charlotte Flatwoods Environmental Park, located at 15801 Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda. The Sheriff’s Office has previously received complaints of sexual activity taking place in the park.

As the deputy drove through the parking area, he saw a man standing beside a white truck with his shorts open, exposing his penis.

When the man, 81-year-old Joe Ogden of North Fort Myers, saw the deputy, he put his penis back inside his shorts and began to walk away.

Ogden was arrested and charged with Exposure of a Sexual Organ. He was released on a $1,000 bond.
