Jason Paul Taylor

Mandeville Police arrested a 39-year-old Metairie man Monday for masturbating on the lakefront, the third such incident in recent weeks.

Jason Paul Taylor was booked with one count of obscenity after a 59-year-old woman called 911 at about 12:30 p.m. to say that she had seen a man masturbating outside a black sedan on Lakeshore Drive near Girod Street.

The woman provided a description and a picture she had taken of the suspect. Mandeville officers located Taylor minutes later on Lafitte Street near Florida Street as he was trying to leave the area.

Two other men have been arrested recently and booked with obscenity. Sean David Rhodes, 22, of Mandeville was arrested last month and booked with obscenity after police allegedly caught him masturbating in his car. Earlier this month, police arrested 51-year-old Keith Cangiamilla for exposing himself and masturbating in public. Police arrested him and removed him, naked, from his Cadillac.
