MARCO ISLAND, Fla. — A man has been charged after sending lewd photos to an officer who responded to his call of a suspicious vehicle in his neighborhood.

The Naples Daily News reports Paul Arnold Kirleis, 30, contacted police about the suspicious vehicle and an officer spoke with him about the incident on his department-issued phone.

The officer began receiving texts from Kirleis shortly after the conversation.

According to the report, one photo text featured Kirleis naked, bent over, and looking at the camera. Another captured a man who appeared to be Kirleis in a similar pose while wearing lingerie.

Kirleis has been charged with stalking and prohibition of certain acts in connection with obscene, lewd materials. Kirleis told police he was intoxicated the night of the initial call and does not remember the incident.
