A man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly exposed himself in front of Kohl's in the Kingsport Pavilion Shopping Center.

According to Kingsport police, shoppers told authorities they saw the man exposing his genitals while sitting in a white car parked in the fire lane in front of the store. Officers saw the man attempt to leave in the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop.

The man, later identified as 50-year-old Larry Hildebrand, said he had been waiting in the car for his girlfriend while she was inside the store. Police added that he admitted to exposing himself, but he thought no one would notice.

Hildebrand was arrested and charged with indecent exposure. He was later released from the Kingsport City Jail after posting a $1,500 bond.
