BRADENTON, FL. - Authorities have charged a man with indecent exposure for exposing his private parts and masturbating in front of a family playing miniature golf at Smugglers Cove.

The incident happened Friday around 10pm at 2000 Cortez Road.

The family was on hole #3 playing miniature golf, when one of the family members spotted 49-year-old Christopher Hobbs in the hedges nearby. She says he then pulled down his pants and began to grab his private area and masturbate. The girl told her mother.

On hole #16, the family saw the suspect in the bushes again with his pants down. They called the sheriff’s department. A deputy arrived and found Hobbs in the bushes with his hands down his pants.

The report says Hobbs told the deputy that he was near the dock looking at females and masturbating. He also said he was masturbating because he had nothing better to do.

Hobbs was arrested and charged with Indecent Exposure.
