Southampton Town officials have temporarily closed the Poxabogue Golf Center in Sagaponack following the arrest of the manager on a charge involving a minor.

Steven Lee, 46, of Ronkonkoma, allegedly photographed a minor female's genital area through a one-way window. Police did not indicate when the incident occurred or how old the girl involved was. He was arrested and charged with a felony, unlawful surveillance, as well as a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a minor on Wednesday. He allegedly showed the photographs to employees, several of whom contacted Southampton Town police. 

The Town of Southampton, which contracts the management of the nine-hole golf course and driving range to Steven Lee Golf, Inc., closed the facility on Wednesday. "We expect that normal operations will resume as soon as possible," the town said in a statement. 

The restaurant is under separate contract and has remained open to the public.
