A 28-year-old man was arrested early Saturday morning after police say he was caught masturbating outside a Virginia Square-area 7-Eleven store at 3510 Wilson Boulevard.

An officer was driving by the store around 4:40 a.m. when he saw Nathanael Lovett, 28, performing the lewd act in plain view of potential passersby, according to police. The police report does not note whether anybody other than officer witnessed the act.

Lovett, who police say was recently released from jail in D.C., was charged with indecent exposure and held without bail. Public records show Lovett’s most recent address was an apartment in Northeast D.C. He does not match the description of a suspect seen masturbating along the W&OD Trail last week, according to Arlington County Police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck.

    Give the guy a break. He probably couldn’t handle the fame that his online documentary would bring him.

        In his defense, I bet he was inside the 7-11 reading one of those swimsuit mags and the clerk told him to beat it.

          So he was just following orders?

          He was visually assaulting anyone that walked by..

          • Arlingtonian

            Virginia Square’s high rise buildings assault me every day. Much more than than that poor guy’s actions ever could have. Why didn’t the cops arrest the developers that constructed these building?

            Oh, sorry. I forgot that the County Board approved all of these assaults.

    People live in Arlington to avoid such lovely DC “culture”…this is a good case-in-point.
