A police officer was caught pleasuring himself at a Starbucks.

The high-ranking New Jersey police officer pleaded guilty to charges of lewdness after he exposed himself in the coffee shop.

Lt. Benito Gonzalez of the Camden County Police Department was suspended without pay after he exposed himself at the Starbucks on Route 70 in Cherry Hill.

Gonzalez worked in the department’s narcotics unit.

Prosecutors said that Gonzalez was off duty when he pulled down his shorts and began pleasuring himself while seated at a table inside the coffee shop.

An employee at the store witnessed the act and called police, leading to the arrest of Gonzalez.

At the time of his arrest, Gonzalez was a 17-year veteran with the police department.

Gonzalez is now set to appear at an administrative hearing in which police officials will decide whether or not he will be fired from the police department.
