A Pierce County man pleaded guilty last week to unsavory acts at a Lakewood bikini barista stand.


According to a prosecutor’s affidavit:


Robert Kenneth Price, 49, exposed and manipulated himself in front of three different baristas at the Hot Chick-a-Latte drive-thru a total of 13 times over four days in January.


“On two occasions, he was driven by his wife,” the charging documents say. “He also showed one barista a picture of his penis on his cell phone and asked her what she thought about it.”


Then, on Jan. 7, after an alleged incident, one of the barista’s mothers followed him home and documented his license plate allowing police to catch up with him.


Police said Price admitted to exposing himself “three or four” times, including once when his wife was at the wheel. She also told police she had seen one of his displays.


Price has a history of sex crime convictions in other states, the affidavit says.


Records show he pleaded guilt to two counts of indecent exposure. The charge has a standard sentencing range of 33-43 months; online court records showed he was scheduled to be sentenced in August. Price was being held in the Pierce County jail Tuesday evening.
