Federal prosecutor arrested for swimming in his boxers

A Miami federal prosecutor was arrested Sunday afternoon at a local bar after a young girl and her mother accused him of being indecent when he went swimming in his boxers at the establishment's pool overlooking the Miami River and downtown.

Sean Cronin, 35, was charged with two misdemeanors -- lewd and lascivious exhibition and nonviolent obstruction of justice -- by a Miami police officer as he tried to leave Finnegan's River, 401 SW Third Ave., according to an arrest affidavit.

Cronin, a Boston native who was watching the New England Patriots game on the big-screen TV at the outdoor bar, decided to go swimming in his boxer shorts. The girl and her mother were at the pool.

According to the arrest form, the girl and her mother told police that Cronin's genitalia were exposed as he exited the pool. `The victim's mother, who also witnessed the incident, then covered her daughter's eyes,'' the form said.
