Police say a panicked flasher at a North Carolina Walmart was arrested within minutes of the crime this week, after he ran into a vehicle while trying to escape the parking lot, according to TV station WFMY.

The scene played out Tuesday evening at the Walmart in Kernersville, where Justin Zachary Irvin allegedly stood in the parking lot and “exposed himself” to a passing woman, the station reported. Kernersville is 10 miles east of Winston-Salem, in central North Carolina.

Investigators say Irvin jumped into a vehicle to make his getaway, but was stopped when he crashed into a car, reported the Greensboro News & Record.

Irvin — charged with a hit and run — then tried to flee again, leaving the crash scene on South Main Street, arrest records show.

However, police responding to the indecent exposure call “found the suspect nearby,” the News & Record said.

Irvin, 35, has been charged with indecent exposure, hit and run, violation of the seat belt law, speeding and reckless driving, according to Forsyth County Detention Center records.

Bond was set at $10,000 and he has a March 14 court date, records show.
