Police: Man Arrested Twice In One Month For Masturbating At Airport, DMV

PALM SPRINGS, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – A local man was arrested for the second time in less than one month’s time for the same reason – masturbating in public.

The Palm Beach Post is reporting that 34-year-old Edward Michael Alvin was seen pleasuring himself in the arrival area of the Palm Beach International Airport on Friday. Multiple witnesses reported his crime, leading to his second arrest for indecent exposure in less than 30 days.

On Nov. 8, he had been arrested for reportedly masturbating in the West Palm Beach Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. An off-duty officer approached Alvin at the time and requested that he stop, but he refused, resulting in the first arrest.

Because of his actions, Alvin now faces a total of four counts of indecent exposure. Though he was imprisoned over the weekend at the Palm Beach County Jail, he was released Sunday on his own recognizance.

The Post learns that Alvin landed in legal trouble earlier this year when he stole his former boss’ car in July. He subsequently crashed the car while driving under the influence, court records obtained by the paper indicate.
