A man was arrested after he exposed himself to a woman at a beach in Florida.

However, the man had no idea that the woman was a retired federal law enforcement officer with the Department of Justice.

The woman called police after the man who was identified as 48-year-old Paris J. Lapointe, exposed himself to her and pleasured himself.

The Vero Beach Police Department received a call from the woman at about 10:30 a.m.

She told police that while she was sitting at the beach, the man who sat about 5 yards away from her, stared at her. He then walked behind some bushes, removed his shorts and exposed himself to the victim.

When she saw the man pleasuring himself, the woman called police.

During their investigation, police asked victim for ID. When she handed over her information, they discovered that she is a retired federal law enforcement officer who holds credentials with the Department of Justice, police said.

Lapointe denied ever seeing the woman or exposing himself.

Lapointe was arrested and charged with exposure of sexual organs.

According to court records, since 2007, Lapointe has been arrested more than 10 times in Vero Beach, on charges that include disorderly conduct, disorderly intoxication, and trespassing.
