At least one guy did.

Police in Mandeville, Louisiana, arrested a local man Monday, June 15th, for allegedly masturbating in his car in public.

The incident occurred in the Northlake Shopping Center, police said.

Just after 6:30 p.m. – still in daylight hours – police received a call concerning public obscenity in the parking lot, located in the 1800 block of North Causeway Approach, writes nola.com.

Officers allegedly found the man there in his charcoal gray 2006 Nissan Altima, according to a Mandeville Police report.

When officers arrived, the report said, they found the man “seated in the vehicle and still actively ‘perpetrating his crime,'” according to the press release.

The man was arrested and charged with one count of public obscenity. The charge carries a fine of between $1,000 and $2,000, and jail time of between six months and three years, police said.

The man was booked into the St. Tammany Parish jail, according to police.

  1. My ex’s coworker recently got busted for this. Didn’t help that he did it in front of a school…

    He said something that he was “trying to pass time.”
