TMZ Sports released the police bodycam footage that shows authorities detaining the Jays catcher after he was caught in a compromising situation in the parking lot of a Dunedin, Fla., strip mall on Feb. 7. The video only showed some footage of McGuire as cops say the cameras malfunctioned while recording.

The Jays player was initially charged with exposure of sexual organs, a first-degree misdemeanour that could’ve landed him a year of jail time if convicted.

TMZ Sports reported McGuire attempted to explain his side of the story before eventually confessing: “I realized, what an idiot. What a dumb place to be hanging out.”

“Why would you come to a parking lot just to masturbate?” an officer asked the obviously embarrassed McGuire.”I just … I don’t know,” the 25-year-old replied. McGuire can be heard apologizing to authorities, stating, “I made a mistake having my pants down and doing what I was doing.”

“I really am apologetic. And I know I shouldn’t have been doing this,” he admitted.

McGuire pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of disorderly conduct and was fined $450.
