A 27-year-old man has been arrested after police say he began publicly pleasuring himself while inside of a Starbucks.

The incident occurred at the Starbucks on Collins Avenue and 29th Street on Sunday.

Miami Beach police say they were called to the area after several customers witnessed the man masturbating in a public area.

One of the witnesses managed to record video of the incident and told police that the situation went on for about 10 minutes.

When authorities arrived to the scene, the suspect identified as Blake Reign, refused to comply with officers and forced them to use extreme measures to take him into custody.

After the incident, Reign was briefly treated at Mount Sinai Medical Center after authorities were forced to deploy 8 stun guns, used “closed fist distraction blows” and kicked him in the lower back area.

He is now facing lewd and lascivious behavior, disorderly conduct in an establishment, and resisting an officer without violence charges.

His bond has been set at $700.
