SAN DIEGO (AP) — A former Southern California television weatherman has pleaded guilty to a lewd act in public.

Joe Lizura, who has resigned as morning weatherman at San Diego’s KUSI-TV, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for masturbating in the window of a San Diego office building in October.

The San Diego Union-Tribune says the 49-year-old Lizura entered the plea on Jan. 31 and he was placed on three years’ probation. He was also ordered to pay a $200 fine and attend a counseling session.

San Diego police say a woman in her 20s saw Lizura was masturbating while watching her as she waited at a bus stop. Lt. Andra Brown says another witness also reported seeing the incident.

Lizura told police he was adjusting window blinds.
