MSU Police respond to public masturbation, larceny
MSU police reported an incident of public masturbation and resisting arrest during the evening on Oct. 28. Two witnesses, a 31-year-old male from Dewitt Township and a 23-year-old female from Hamtramck, MI were in the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center parking ramp when they saw the suspect, a 62-year-old male from East Lansing, masturbating on the first level of the ramp. Police made contact with the individual, who had been drinking, and the suspect resisted arrest.
A warrant was sought, which was validated in 54B District Court, where he was charged with resist and obstruct, disorderly conduct and obscene conduct. He has court dates scheduled for later in November.
