Tampa Police arrested a 34-year-old man after they say he exposed himself to a youth dance team.

Police say Orenthal Fortson showed his penis to the girls, ranging in age from 9-years-old to 15-years-old, while saying "see what I'm working with."

They were standing outside of the facility where they practice near intersection North 50th Street and East 10th Avenue in East Tampa, according to police. 

"He was just walking down the sidewalk like it was nothing, front showing back showing," president of the dance team, Sharon Savage said.

Police say Fortson then exposed himself at a nearby Church's Chicken restaurant and Save-A-Lot grocery store.

Police eventually found Fortson at a nearby McDonald's with his pants down and penis partially exposed.

Fortson ran as officers tried to take him into custody. So they fired a taser at him and arrested him.
