Louisiana Probation and Parole officers arrested a Monroe man on suspicion of obscenity last week after authorities received a complaint the suspect showed a photo of his genitals to his case manager.

The suspect was identified as Joseph Collins, 27, of 204 Wilson St., Monroe.

Authorities made contact with Collins while he was completing work and took him into custody.

“When asked where the picture was that he showed his case manager, he said, 'What picture?'” stated the arrest report.

An officer reviewed Collins' phone and found two photos of male genitals.

When showed the photo, Collins refused to identify the male genitals.

According to authorities, Collins was on probation for manslaughter and parole for obscenity.

He was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center.
