ALTON, Ill. (KMOV.com) - A Jerseyville man was arrested for allegedly exposing himself to a public school bus driver on Homer Adams Parkway in Alton.

Police said Adam Baumgartner sat naked and performed a lewd act in his Jeep next to the school bus, which was stopped at a red-light. The incident happened around 8:30 Monday morning.

"He was self-satisfying himself while at the same time looking at [the bus driver] and smiling at her," said Captain Mike Dixon of the Madison County Sheriff's Department. 

Baumgartner posted a $100 bond and was released later the same day. News 4 asked sheriff officials why a low bond was set for this offense.

Captain Dixon said the act may result in increased charges, "but at this point it meets the criteria for the misdemeanor offense of public indecency, which is only a $100 bond."

At least three people witnessed the incident, including a teenage boy on-board the bus.
