A man has been arrested in Waukesha, Wisconsin, after an off-duty police officer caught him "having sex" with an abandoned sofa.
According to a misdemeanour report obtained by the Smoking Gun, cop Ryan Edwards said he spotted Gerard Streator, 46, leaning over the couch and "thrusting his pelvic area against the cushions and trying to sexually gratify himself by rubbing his penis between the two cushions".
[Insert your own "sofa so good" gag here.]
When challenged by Officer Edwards, Streator - unsurprisingly - ran away, but was later caught and charged in the hotel where he works. (Hmmm... that must have been a tad embarrassing. But then again, if you're the kind of person who bonks furniture in the street, maybe you're not easily embarrassed.)
Anyway, Streator could face up to nine months in jail and a £7,000 fine. He'll also presumably have to work hard to win back the trust of friends and family. After all, you wouldn't feel too easy about leaving him alone in your living room while you went to stick the kettle on, would you?
And while we're on the subject of strange crimes, take a look at our rogues' gallery of mugshots...
