By News Staff


The man accused of exposing himself to several women on Gooseberry Beach in Westport faced a judge in Fall River Tuesday.

According to police 45-year-old Andrew Butler, from East Providence, is accused of flashing a number of women on the beach, including a teen girl.

The teen was wise enough to take a photo of him.

Police posted that picture on their Facebook page, which later led to his arrest.

Butler works for Lifespan at an administrative office.

A spokesperson says he did not have direct patient contact.

Butler has been placed on leave. He was charged with open and gross lewdness, a felony crime in Massachusetts, and held on bail.
