A man was arrested at Big Pine Community Park Monday evening after he was seen masturbating in his car.
Dispatchers received a report from a man who said his wife and children were at the park. He said his wife called him and told him a man was sitting in his car, masturbating while watching their children play. He said he went to the park and walked up the black Toyota Corolla where the man was sitting. He said the man – later identified as 50 year old John Woodruff – had exposed himself in the car. He said he asked Woodruff what he was doing there and Woodruff just laughed at him.
Detective Manny Cuervo and Deputies Joshua Gordon and Donald Stullken responded to the park at 6:30 p.m. Woodruff was still there. He told the officers he had just come to the Keys from Indiana and was living in his car.
Woodruff was arrested by Deputy Gordon. He was charged with indecent exposure and he was booked into jail.
