Even in Minneapolis biking isn't THIS hot...
Around 7:30 p.m. on May 20, Minneapolis bike cops arrested Stephen Smith while he was touching himself along the Midtown Greenway bike path.

The police report says Smith was "masterbating" [sic] when officers arrived on the scene, and apparently it wasn't the first time he's pulled a stunt of that sort.

Here's what the MPD said about Smith in a tweet posted today: Reached for comment this afternoon, MPD spokesman John Elder says Smith "made several statements that our investigators are looking into. Nothing more available at this time."

Smith was arrested on suspicion of a misdemeanor count of indecent exposure and booked into Hennepin County Jail. Here's his mugshot:

Reached for comment this afternoon, city of Minneapolis spokesperson Casper Hill tells us Smith pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor exposure charge on May 21. He was sentenced to 90 days of community service, with 80 of those days stayed. Accounting for the two days he was cooling his heels in the slammer, that means Smith will have to do eight days of community service.

Hill says the terms of Smith's probation include undergoing a psychological examination and abiding by conditions recommended by his parole officer. And oh yeah, he has to avoid committing a similar offense. So if you're feeling brave and want to make sure Smith is staying on the straight and narrow, keep your eyes peeled next time you're biking down the Greenway.

You haven't lived until you've orgasmed in a public place. Just choose carefully.

I totally read this as "confused Greenway masturbator."

Now if he were a cereal masturbator, we'd have a story.

I know that dude. We used to call him "beat-off Bob" - this was in the mid-90s. They used to chase him out of Coffman Union on a weekly basis.

When I went to the U, there was an older white male dressed only in a trench coat & stocking cap who walked around East Bank and flashed girls/grabbed their crotches. This was circa 2008-2009. I wonder if it's the same dude?

He looks very familiar. Maybe I would have a better time recognizing him if they put up some full body (waist) shots.
