A 42-year-old Bryan police officer was arrested Thursday after admitting to participating in an indecent exposure act, College Station police said.
Officer Adam Lamar Brooks of Anderson was placed on administrative leave Tuesday in anticipation of his arrest for an off-duty incident at Post Oak Mall.
On Nov. 4, a woman parked in the Dillard’s parking lot alerted mall security that there was a man in a nearby car who appeared to be masturbating, according to a police report.
When College Station police arrived, the woman told them she saw the man — later identified as Brooks — put up a windshield sun screen and lay his seat back, authorities said.
At that point, the woman said to police, Brooks began masturbating and continued to do so as several women walked by, according to the report.
College Station police said they were not able to locate the vehicle that day, but got the license plate information from the woman.
On Feb. 24, security officers for the mall reported that the same vehicle was back at the mall, police said. Officers found Brooks inside the car, and issued a criminal trespass warning for the mall pending further investigation, officials said.
A College Station police officer interviewed Brooks about the incident on Monday, officials said.
While Brooks initially denied the allegations, he later admitted to it, adding that there were “several different incidents where he masturbated in his car at the mall,” according to the police report.
Indecent exposure is a Class B misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine up to $2,000.
Brooks remained in the Brazos County Jail Thursday in lieu of $5,000 bail. http://www.theeagle.com/police/Bryan-of ... e-off-duty
