The incident occurred after one of the kids knocked on his door and woke him up, according to investigators.

The victims told police Lepera came out of the home yelling and cursing, then went into the middle of the road and pulled his pants down, exposing his buttocks.

While being questioned, the report states, Lepera admitted to partially pulling his pants down.

He was arrested for indecent exposure by the responding officers.
