LUBBOCK, Texas, March 14, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Tony Thornton, the CEO and President of the Planned Parenthood Association of Lubbock, was arrested at a baseball field on Monday afternoon for indecent exposure after he allegedly exposed his genitals to a 43-year-old male, according to local ABC station KCBD 11.

The state’s penal code describes indecent exposure as exposing one’s genitals with the intent to arouse the sexual desire of another.

Thornton was transported to the Lubbock County Detention Center, where he posted a $750 bond and was released late the following morning.

Reporters with KCBD went to Thornton’s home Tuesday evening, but he didn’t answer the door. A representative of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America told the news station they would work to issue a statement on Thornton’s arrest, but hadn’t followed up by the time the report was published.
