HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. - A man accused of masturbating at a Hallandale Beach park told detectives that he had been doing it for years and even paid off a group of children who once caught him in the act, police said.

Neil White, 34, was arrested Sunday on charges of lewd and lascivious exhibition.

A woman told detectives that White was masturbating on a milk cart in a bathroom stall at B.F. James Park. She said he had a magazine with pictures of nude women in it and a mirror to see who was coming into the bathroom.

According to a Hallandale Beach police arrest affidavit, White admitted to detectives that he was masturbating in the same bathroom stall that he had been using for about two years. White said he believed that he had masturbated in the bathroom more than 30 times during that period.

White told detectives that he had paid several children in a previous incident so that they wouldn't tell anyone that they saw him masturbating, the report said.

According to the report, White said he "gets sexual pleasure from masturbating in public places" where he might get caught.
