Port Charlotte, FL (July 16, 2019) – On Monday, police charged 43-year-old Brian Arrigo with exposure of sexual organs and open container possession after a confrontation.
The incident took place after a deputy had another vehicle pulled over at a traffic stop on Cedarwood Street near Spear Street when he suddenly noticed Arrigo sprinting toward the patrol vehicle. The deputy called out to Arrigo and told him that, if he was planning something, it was not a good idea.
Arrigo then started to walk away from the vehicle and lowered his shorts, lifting his shirt so that he could expose his buttocks to the deputy as he walked toward another lot.
The deputy approached Arrigo and found that he had been drinking out of a Miller High Life that was inside a paper bag.
Because Arrigo had multiple previous arrests, he did not qualify for the pre-arrest diversion program. He has since been arrested.
