Reese McGuire, a catcher for the Toronto Blue Jays, was accused by law enforcement of exposing himself last week.
McGuire, 24, was given a notice to appear in court on a charge of exposure of sexual organs, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office reports.
At about 2:15 p.m. Friday, deputies were summoned to a parking lot in the 900 block of Patricia Avenue in Dunedin “for a subject seen sitting inside an SUV and exposing himself,” deputes reported. Deputies said the man was McGuire, who they said was “cooperative and did not deny the allegations.”
McGuire is scheduled to appear in court March 16 in Clearwater. The Blue Jays hold spring training in Dunedin.
No other details about the incident were provided.
