Camden County Police Lieutenant Benito Gonzalez Jr. was arrested and suspended after being accused of masturbating inside a Starbucks in Cherry Hill, N.J.

Lt. Gonzalez, who is head of a narcotics unit, pulled down his shorts and exposed himself inside the Starbucks "knowing or reasonably expecting that the act was likely to be observed by a non-consenting person who likely would be affronted or alarmed," said the police report, noted CourierPostOnline.com.

An unidentified Starbucks employee reported the alleged masturbation on May 7, but Gonzalez was not arrested until last Friday.

According to CBS Philadelphia, Gonzalez was charged with a "disorderly persons lewdness offense" (video below).
