A man was arrested on a charge of indecent exposure after he allegedly scanned his private parts at the self-checkout counter of a supermarket, according to police in Washington.

East Precinct officers arrested the man on Wednesday night, after he flashed employees at the self-checkout machine at a Capitol Hill store.

The incident unfolded around 5:00 p.m., at the store located in the 400 block of Broadway E.

Employees noticed the man standing at the self-checkout machine, laughing to himself as he placed his genitals on top of the scanner of a self-checkout machine.

The man fled the store, but returned five hours later, and was confronted by employees. Employees told the man to leave, but he refused, and got into a shoving match with store security before leaving the store.

Officers later arrested the man at Broadway E and E Harrison Street, and booked him into the King County Jail for indecent exposure.
