Seattle police arrested a man who they say placed his genitals on a self-checkout scanner at a Capitol Hill grocery store.
About 5 p.m. Wednesday, employees at the store in the 400 block of Broadway East saw the man standing at a self-checkout machine and laughing to himself as he placed his genitals on the scanner screen.
The man fled, but returned five hours later and was confronted by employees, police said. When he refused to leave he got into a shoving match with store security before again leaving the store.
Police later arrested the 31-year-old man at Broadway East and East Harrison Street and booked him into the King County Jail for investigation of indecent exposure.
