Before completing the transaction Braddox stated that he was waiting for a friend and then went to an adjacent room to await their arrival. A few moments later Braddox again approached the clerk and when he did so, his genitals were exposed, according to Austin. Braddox was advised to leave by other staff members and he did so.
