Man charged in penis 'puppet' incident

FEDERAL WAY, Wash., May 21 (UPI) -- Police in Washington state said a suspect used his genitals as a puppet while standing over an air conditioner intake at an apartment complex.

The police report of the incident said Timothy Wayne Martin, 44, of Auburn, Wash., was arrested after residents of the Arcadia Apartment Complex in Federal Way called police at about 10:30 a.m. May 13 and reported a man standing over an air conditioner intake wearing only an unbuttoned flannel shirt and "was apparently manipulating" his penis with a string "like a puppet," Seattlepi.com reported Thursday.

Police said Martin was arrested at the scene and still had the string attached to his penis. He was charged under the state's felony indecent exposure statute due to having two prior convictions for similar crimes.

Martin was also in possession of a small quantity of methamphetamine at the time of his arrest. Police said he also had a pornographic magazine.

The suspect was taken to the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in lieu of $25,000 bail.
