On Wednesday, investigators announced charges against 33-year-old Paul Aaron Montella who they say is the man in the video allegedly inappropriately revealing himself to the young woman.

As trooper Stephen Limani told KDKA, when troopers released surveillance video last year, “we have a clear picture of this individual he doesn’t try to conceal his identity.”

The video is so clear someone came forward to identify the man.

The person who told the police who it was?

None other than the suspect himself. He turned himself in.

At one point in the video it’s pretty clear Montella was having a good time in more ways than one.

Limani commenting on the video saying, “It seems like he’s happy or proud of what he just did. It really appears he has a smile smirk on.”

Montella is likely not smiling now. He’s charged with indecent exposure, open lewdness and disorderly conduct. Montella is free awaiting his preliminary hearing.
