Florida Man Accused Of Pleasuring Himself At Yoga Class


If police have their way, the next pose this suspect does will be for a mugshot.

A Florida man is accused of pleasuring himself during a visit to yoga class, authorities say.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as Joseph Jordan, 42, following the incident at Power Yoga studio in San Marco around 9:30 a.m., Sunday.

FCN reports:

According to a JSO report five minutes after the class started the instructor ... looks and sees the suspect with his hands in his pants. The report said he was masturbating and they confronted him, gave him a refund and escorted him out of the building.

The report said Joseph Jordan was wearing jean shorts and a white t-shirt.

Authorities say that Jordan, a registered sex offender, used his real name when signing up the the class.

"He filled out the form with a lot of his specific information," said Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Melissa Bujeda, according to News4Jax. "Maybe couldn't control himself once he was in there ... He wasn't trying to hide, which causes us more concern."

Hours later, Jordan was seen near a woman's bathroom on the University of North Florida campus. Authorities escorted away, not knowing about the earlier incident. A warrant for Jordan's arrest was not filed until Monday, according to WOKV.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500 or via email at Crime Stoppers can also be reached at (866) 845-8477 (TIPS).
