Local Texas Planned Parenthood president Tony Thorton arrested

What's the last thing Planned Parenthood in Texas needs right now? How about the executive director of Planned Parenthood Lubbock exposing himself at a baseball field to another man?
Tony Thornton, CEO and president of the Planned Parenthood Association of Lubbock, was arrested and charged with indecent exposure Monday afternoon.

Thornton, 56, was arrested at the baseball field on Municipal Drive in Lubbock, said Sgt. Jonathan Stewart with the Lubbock Police Department.

According to the police report, the alleged victim was a 43-year-old male.
The local FOX station picked the story up as did a local NBC station which called the national headquarters.
KCBD NewsChannel 11 contacted the national headquarters of Planned Parenthood. A person with the media relations department said they would work to issue a statement on Thornton's arrest. As of Tuesday evening we have not received a response.

At this point, there is no word on whether Thornton is still employed with Planned Parenthood, following his arrest.
