An Alpharetta man was arrested this week after authorities allegedly spotted him "playing with himself" in the linen aisle of a Gwinnett County Wal-Mart. 

The incident happened shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday at the Wal-Mart at 2635 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth. According to a Duluth police incident report, two of the store's loss prevention officers first noticed Afshin Pakzadan's behavior and alerted authorities.

The responding police officers approached the linen aisle and saw Pakzadan's hand moving "back and forth" inside his pants. 

"As we both made contact with Mr. Pakzadan he removed his hand from his pocket quickly and stood straight up," the incident report said. 

Pakzadan was arrested and charged with public indecency. He was later released from the Gwinnett County jail on $600 bond.
