A man is charged with public indecency after allegedly performing a sex act in front of a teenager at an Upper Arlington-area gym.

Clyde Dowell is charged with public indecency for exposing himself inside of the Life Time Fitness, located along Henderson Road.

Police said that Dowell was inside of the gym’s sauna when he performed a sex act on himself, just feet from a 17 year old.

Gym members said that they had no clue about the allegations.

“If I saw that, it would be disturbing, but it’s hard to say without actually seeing it,” said member Benjamin Lynch.

A corporate spokeswoman for Life Time said that Dowell’s membership was terminated.

10TV News discovered that Dowell has faced six previous public indecency charges dating back to 2012. Two of the charges were dismissed.

Dowell remains on probation from the last time he was charged in 2011 after an incident at Rhodes Park.

Dowell refused 10TV’s request for comment.
