North Port, Florida -- A man has been arrested on battery and indecent exposure charges after police say he performed a lewd act in a Sarasota Walmart.

The Herald Tribune reports 28-year-old William Tyler Black performed a sex act on himself in the Walmart because he saw several "hot girls" in the store. 

Black allegedly took a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue to the store's toy section, where he performed the act and then left the magazine on a toy shelf.  He was stopped by police before leaving.

Black is charged with indecent exposure in public, and a battery charge of leaving bodily fluids in a place where a child may come into harmful contact with it. Black remains in custody at the Sarasota County Jail.
