Holmes Beach man arrested for exposure

Holmes Beach Police on Friday arrested Rhonald C. Gupton, 38, of the 5600 block of Guava Street after he allegedly exposed himself in the presence of persons under the age of 16.

According to Lt. Dale Stephenson of the HBPD, officers were called to the area around 7:55 p.m. after witnesses reported that Gupton had exposed himself to persons younger than 16 who were playing in the street near his home.

After investigating the complaints, Gupton was arrested and charged with three counts of a lewd and lascivious offense, each carrying a $10,000 bond.

Gupton has a prior arrest record for various traffic offenses, including reckless driving, fleeing a police officer and driving under the influence.
