Venice, Florida - Sarasota Sheriff's deputies arrested six men who they say were looking for more than fresh air at Caspersen Beach Park, south of Venice.

The arrests come after complaints were made of illegal nudity on the beach.

Investigators say the men, most of whom are over the age of 60, were charged with various offenses ranging from Exposure of Sexual Organs to Simple Battery. Investigators say some of the men were caught having oral sex with other men.

Other suspects reportedly propositioned an undercover Sheriff's deputy for oral sex. Reports state that one suspect repeatedly touched the undercover officer's genitals and after his arrest told the deputy "I didn't touch you, I fell."
