This is one that you might actually get, but it involves the curious response of Robert Scott, 78, to a 29-year-old woman who rejected his advances in Louisiana.
According to police, Scott asked out the woman outside of a hotel and said that she looked like a model. The woman was participating in a seminar at the hotel and did not appear receptive to his advances. Scott allegedly persisted with a “sugar daddy” offer that was also rebuffed. Scott responded to the second rejection by dropping his pants and underwear and mooned the woman.
He was arrested and given a $5000 bond.
He was charged with obscenity, which struck me as a bit odd since one would expect public indecency or flashing. However, the law is quite broad. Here is its most pertinent parts:
A. The crime of obscenity is the intentional:
(1) Exposure of the genitals, pubic hair, anus, vulva, or female breast nipples in any public place or place open to the public view, or in any prison or jail, with the intent of arousing sexual desire or which appeals to prurient interest or is patently offensive.
(2)(a) Participation or engagement in, or management, operation, production, presentation, performance, promotion, exhibition, advertisement, sponsorship, electronic communication, or display of, hard core sexual conduct when the trier of fact determines that the average person applying contemporary community standards would find that the conduct, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest; and the hard core sexual conduct, as specifically defined herein, is presented in a patently offensive way; and the conduct taken as a whole lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.
