For the fourth time in the past two years, a Cincinnati man has been arrested for masturbating in public with the aid of a teddy bear. Charles Marshall, 28, was arrested on Wednesday evening after employees at a health clinic spotted him pleasuring himself in an alley. Marshall was cited for disorderly conduct.
Municipal Court records show that Marshall has already been convicted three times of engaging in public indecency/disorderly conduct with a teddy bear. The misdemeanor counts resulted in short jail sentences and small fines for Marshall.
Marshall was first arrested in February 2010 when witnesses spotted him engaged “with a teddy bear in mens bathroom” at a public library (which prompted a judge to order him to “stay away all Hamilton Co. public libraries”).
He was again arrested in November 2010 and August 2011 for “masturbating w/a stuffed animal (teddy bear)” and “masturbating using a teddy bear in a public place where minors were likely to be present.” It is unclear whether police seized Marshall's teddy bear.
