A 75-year-old Paterson man was charged with lewdness after he allegedly exposed himself and urinated on the floor of the Pehle Avenue Dunkin' Donuts in Saddle Brook, police said.
Thomas Myers allegedly exposed his penis while other people were in plain view -- including a 10-year-old girl and her father -- and proceeded to micturate on the store floor despite there being a public restroom just feet away.
"It's one thing to not be able to make it to the bathroom in time and relieve yourself within your pants," Saddle Brook Police Chief Robert Kugler said. "It grossly crosses the line of decency and becomes perversion when you knowingly manipulate and expose your private part and urinate in an area like the lobby of a Dunkin' Donuts."
Myers was released on his own recognizance following the incident.
