MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Police arrested a 38-year-old man and charged him with indecent exposure after a Walmart employee said she caught him touching himself inappropriately in the sock aisle.

It happened at the Walmart in the 5200 block of Elvis Presley Boulevard on Thursday.

An employee at Walmart told police she was making her rounds trying to monitor people stealing, when she noticed Derrell Tate.

She told police she saw Tate push himself up against the sock display, pull out his genitals, and start touching himself. She then notified police who were already in the store.

Officers said Tate was escorted to the loss prevention office where he told officers his genitals were itchy, and he was only scratching himself.

Officers escorted Tate to 201 Poplar because he said he lived out of state, but he did not have valid identification.
