RALEIGH, N.C. — A worker at the North Carolina State Fair was arrested – and fired – for indecent exposure, officials said.

A woman said she saw Barry S. Hawley, 36, of Raleigh, watching a pornographic movie shortly after 7 a.m. He was sitting in his car, parked outside the poultry tent, police said.

The woman reported Hawley to an off-duty police officer, who arrested him on one count of indecent exposure.

State Fair officials said they immediately fired Hawley after his arrest. The incident occurred before the gates opened to the public.

Hawley was released from the Wake County jail after posting bond, officials said.
