A Minnesota man was arrested at a St. Pete Beach hotel after he was found sitting naked in a chair on the rooftop, masturbating in the presence of a hotel employee, according to arrest documents.

On Tuesday, January 8, Jason Bradley Tietz, 47, walked out of the hotel elevator completely naked and approached the balcony of the hotel. An employee noticed Tietz and was shocked so she called her manager. While the employee waited for the manager to arrive, Tietz proceeded to masturbate while sitting in the chair on the rooftop of the hotel.

The manager walked on the rooftop and approached Tietz and told him he couldn't be naked in public and he couldn't masturbate in front of people. Tietz stood up and the manager escorted him toward the stairs. Once they reached the 4th floor, Tietz ran into room 401A and locked the door. The manager called law enforcement and Tietz was eventually arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition.

Google maps lists the location of the hotel as "Hotel Zamora."
