Foley Police say they received a call from a female that had just taken a ride with a Lyft driver on Tuesday, November 12. 

According to officials, the victim told officers that during the drive she noticed that the driver appeared to be sexually gratifying himself based on movements he was making.

They say when she got out of the vehicle, she observed that his genitals were in fact exposed.

Robertson was arrested Wednesday, November 13 and charged with indecent exposure which is a misdemeanor. His bond was set at $500.

Foley police say Robertson has been removed from the Lyft registry of drivers.

Police say they haven't received any additional complaints however, they are urging residents to contact police if they have a legitimate complaint.
