FORT MYERS, Fla.-- 20-year-old Ivan Kinack was arrested by the Lee County Sheriff's Office on October 8th after he reportedly exposed himself to others at an apartment complex pool. 

The Reef, a fairly new apartment complex near the Florida Gulf Coast University campus, is home to hundreds of students. The website states the complex features everything you need, everything you want and a few extra surprises. 

But on Saturday, dozens of students and potential students got quite the surprise when a 20-year-old man began touching himself, and according to a police report even chased one student around the pool. 

"Yea we were at the pool that day and then we left and our friends were talking about how some guy was getting detained," said FGCU student Shay Klein. 

On Tuesday, Fox 4 talked with several students outside the complex who said they were at the pool the day Kinack was arrested. One witness who didn't want to speak on camera said she immediately called 911 after Kinack dropped his pants. The witness is part of the FGCU dive team and said the entire team was at the pool along with potential recruits when incident occurred. 

The deputy who responded to the call arrested Kinack on several charges including indecent exposure and public intoxication. 

The police report shows witnesses said Kinack had been drinking alcohol and had taken drugs before he was arrested. But the report also shows Kinack told deputies he wasn't drinking or doing drugs, but took his pants off to prove his manhood.

Students like Klein and Hovis said while what happened is disturbing they aren't completely surprised.  "Yea, like there's always cops here," said Klein. 

The Reef is managed by Asset Campus Housing based out of Houston, Texas. Fox 4 is waiting to hear back from the company after reaching out about how safety and security is handled for students living at the complex.
