Sex Offender Arrested at Movie Theater

A registered sex offender is arrested again at a Tallahassee movie theater.

It happened at the AMC Theaters late Wednesday night. Tallahassee police say two 15-year-old girls were watching a movie in theatre 16 when they say a man sat nearby and started masturbating in plain view.

LT Brian Donaldson with the Tallahassee Police Department says, "He didn't try to make contact with them other than looking over their way. The ladies did have a clear view if where he's at, so it did appear he sat there with a purpose other than to watch the movie."

Forty-year-old Stephen Morse was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious acts. The FDLE Web site confirms he is a registered sex offender from Vermont.
