NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) — Natchez police say a Louisiana man has been arrested on charges of watching pornographic material inside a local McDonald’s “Play Place” where two children were playing.

Police tell The Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/nu8Ekj ) that 53-year-old Ronnie L. Hobbs of Ferriday, La., was arrested Friday on charges of public display of sexually-oriented materials and contributing to the neglect or delinquency of a child.

Police say officers could see the images Hobbs was allegedly viewing on his computer from the parking lot and drive-thru. Police say Hobbs was arrested as he tried to shut off his computer as an officer approached him.

Police say the two minor children with Hobbs were released into the custody of the man’s mother-in-law.

Police say Hobbs’ computer was confiscated also with flash drives and CDs.
