A video showing the arrest of Toronto Blue Jays catcher Reese McGuire was released by TMZ Sports on Sunday, and it showed him after he was caught masturbating in public.
It was back in February when he found himself being charged with “exposure of sexual organs” after he was seen in a public parking lot outside a mall in Dunedin, Florida.
“I realized, what an idiot,” the 25-year-old said of himself. “What a dumb place to be hanging out.”
He later tried to convince the officer not to charge him.
“I’ve realized that I made a mistake having my pants down and doing what I was doing,” he said. “And if there’s any way I can really learn from it and hopefully no one’s harmed. … I really am apologetic. And I know I shouldn’t have been doing this.”
McGuire later pleaded nolo contendere to a reduced charge and only had to pay a fine and court costs, per TMZ Sports.
