Masturbating on WN leads to arrest

http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/10/justic...html?hpt=hp_t3

Daniel Drinan, 63, was taken into custody Saturday night at Denver International Airport on charges of committing lewd, indecent or obscene acts in public aboard an aircraft, the U.S. Justice Department said Monday in a news release.

A person seated nearby noticed a man fondling himself and ultimately alerted a flight attendant, the Justice Department said, citing the affidavit. A male flight attendant arrived and, after finding the suspect's genitalia exposed, told him to "put his pants back together," according to the federal department.
Drinan allegedly tried to use his laptop at times to hide his activity, investigators said.

Given the slowness of onboard wifi, not surprising that he put his laptop to other uses. DING!

He could have downloaded the porn in to his computer before getting on the plane so no wifi needed to view......not that i've downloaded porn before to view later anywhere.

What is it with these people wacking at their seats. Mile high club initiations, solo or otherwise, should be done in the lav.

Not that I condone doing this in public or anything, but man...at least bring a blanket or something to cover yourself. I feel bad for the guy. I'm sure he is going through some problems and I think any guy has had that time when we've had that urge, but part of life is fighting that and waiting. Come on, man!

I guess it's not so bad after all that Southwest removed the blankets!

Open-and-shut case. Legally speaking.

“I’m guilty of fondling myself in public,” the complaint quoted Drinan. “I’m sorry. I had no intention of doing anything that would offend people or break the law.”

Drinan said he used the aircraft’s WiFi to look at “an erotic site” on his laptop, the complaint said.

“He became aroused and was touching himself,” the agent wrote of his interview with Drinan. “He decided to touch himself because the lights were out on the aircraft and no one was seated next to him, and he was tired and wanted a release.”

In other news, he was hired by Viagra to start in their next ad.
