Woonsocket Police have arrested a 61-year-old Cumberland man and charged him with indecent exposure after he was allegedly sitting in tall grass at Cold Spring Park in the buff on Saturday.

Police said 61-year-old Denis Bessette of Cumberland was noticed at around 12:50 p.m. watching children playing in the park and when he realized he had been spotted, he got dressed and drove from the scene.

Officers on patrol nearby saw Bessette leaving the park a short time later and he was stopped and arrested.

Bessette was arraigned and released on personal recognizance. He is due to appear in court for arraignment on July 1.

The police do not decide what charges to file, call the Attorney Generals office they have the power here, not the police

I hope they disinfected the grass because the human anus is quite filthy and who knows many fecal smears he left steaming on the lawn.
