Spring Hill man charged with peeking into bedroom, indecent exposure

SPRING HILL — A 38-year-old Spring Hill man was arrested and charged with indecent exposure early Monday after a deputy saw him peeking into a bedroom window with his pants down, according to the Hernando Sheriff's Office.

Responding shortly after midnight to a call about a suspicious person, the deputy found Andrew William Dorst Jr. standing on a planter and moving back and forth to look inside the bedroom of a home in the 8200 block of Boyce Street, an arrest affidavit states. Dorst had a gray sheet on top of his head and a rain jacket wrapped around his waist, and his black pants were unzipped and pulled down, exposing his buttocks and genitalia, according to the report.

"The defendant advised that he was trying to get out of the rain by staying under the overhang at the front of the residence and indicated that his pants fell off because they were too small and he didn't have them zippered," Deputy William Martinez wrote.

Dorst, of 9339 Carthage Road, was charged with indecent exposure and prowling. He remained Tuesday in the Hernando County Detention Center in lieu of $1,250 bail, records show.
