Key West, FL (March 28, 2019) – Yesterday in the afternoon hours, police responded to reports of bad behavior at a Key West Beach and eventually led to charges of indecent exposure. A 61-year-old man, identified as David Laurence Calvert, was arrested on Wednesday afternoon after witnesses came forward and told police that he had been spotted masturbating at Higgs Beach. Calvert has since been charged with indecent exposure and marijuana possession. Two witnesses, a man and a woman, spotted Calvert around 2:15 p.m. Calvert had been masturbating on the beach in plain view behind the West Martello Tower. When police arrived, Calvert was still on the scene and had a small amount of marijuana on him. He was taken to jail.
