VENICE, Fla. - An undercover detective made an arrest Thursday after they say a Nokomis man exposed himself along the walking trails in Caspersen Beach Park.

According to a Sarasota County Sheriff's Office report, the detective observed 46-year-old Lee Hauger parked next to him around 2pm.  The detective approached his car window and told Hauger that he was heading back into the trails, and that Hauger could come along if he liked.

Hauger followed the detective into the trails and met up with him, where they began to talk. Hauger then reportedly began talking about a sex act and exposed himself and began touching himself.

The detective identified himself with his badge and arrested Hauger.

He has been charged with Exposure of Sexual Organs.

Caspersen Beach Park has a history of exposure arrests over the years, with the majority of the incidents occurring along the walking trails.
