A 51-year-old man twice convicted of exposing himself pleaded guilty Monday to setting fire to a potato chip rack at a Subway restaurant in Anaheim while nude.

Jason William Ackroyd pleaded guilty to single felony counts of indecent exposure with a prior conviction and recklessly causing a fire of a structure.

As part of the plea deal, single felony counts of arson and attempted arson were dismissed along with a misdemeanor count of resisting arrest, according to court records.

Ackroyd was sentenced to two years of formal probation and 156 days in jail, or time already served since his arrest on March 8.

Ackroyd entered the fast food restaurant at 110 W. Lincoln Ave. about 6:30 p.m., March 8, without any clothes on and used a lighter to ignite a potato chip rack, according to Anaheim Police Department Sgt. Shane Carringer.

Ackroyd also set fire to a portable credit card machine at the restaurant, according to the criminal complaint.

Ackroyd was convicted of exposing himself June 17, 1993 and Feb. 7, 2008, both in Orange County, according to the criminal complaint.
