A Minnesota man vacationing in Florida made like one of the locals yesterday, stripping off his clothes and masturbating while relaxing in a chaise on the roof deck of his St. Petersburg hotel, cops allege.
Jason Tietz, 48, was busted Tuesday afternoon on a lewd and lascivious exhibition charge in connection with his nude hijinks at the waterfront Hotel Zamora (seen above).
According to an arrest affidavit, a female worker told cops she spotted the naked Tietz exit a hotel elevator around 2 PM. He then “proceeded to masturbate while sitting in a chair on the rooftop.” The “shocked” employee summoned a male manager upon seeing the naked man.
The manager subsequently confronted Tietz, telling him that he “could not be naked in public, and he couldn’t masturbate in front of people.” Tietz then stood up and, accompanied by the manager, walked down the stairs. When Tietz reached the fourth floor, he darted into his room and locked the door.
Tietz was later arrested when sheriff’s deputies arrived at the hotel. He was booked into the county jail and later released on bond.
The arrest was Tietz’s third in recent weeks. He was busted on January 3 for trespassing after allegedly refusing to leave a bar at the Beachcomber Beach Resort and Hotel in St. Petersburg. On December 15, Tietz was arrested at a Ramada Inn in Sioux Falls, South Dakota after allegedly exposing himself and masturbating in front of children at the hotel. Tietz was charged with indecent exposure and disorderly conduct.
Tietz, who lives in a Minneapolis suburb, is a hunting enthusiast whose Facebook page contains photos of various animals he has killed. The construction worker’s tattoos include ink of the American flag, a bald eagle, and the year 1776.
