    MIMS, Fla. - An Orange County corrections officer has resigned after he was allegedly caught on tape exposing himself in a Brevard County Dollar General while following a woman around, according to officials and a sworn complaint. 

    William Keister, 55, is accused of exposing himself and masturbating openly in the Dollar General at 2545 U.S. 1 in Mims on Jan. 9, according to a sworn complaint. 

    The incident, which was caught on a surveillance camera, prompted the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office to put out a bulletin with pictures from the video attempting to identify the culprit, the complaint states. One of Keister’s co-workers saw the bulletin and reported it.

    Keister agreed to be interviewed by a BCSO detective last Wednesday. During that interview, he “admitted to exposing his genitals and following a female around the store because he thought she was attractive,” according to the complaint. 

    Keister also “admitted to masturbating for a brief period of time but stopped because he knew it was wrong,” the complaint states. 

    Keister resigned from the Orange County Corrections Department on Friday, an official said.
