LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man was arrested Thursday at Jefferson Community and Technical College for performing a lewd act on himself inside a public restroom, according to Louisville Metro Police.

Officers found Michael E. Smith, 39, sitting in a restroom at JCPS masturbating with women's underwear on the floor, investigators said. Smith is also accused of providing false information about himself to police.

According to an arrest report, JCTC has had an ongoing problem with Smith coming onto campus and leaving behind drug paraphernalia. Smith is charged with criminal trespassing and giving officers false information.
