This isn't what they mean by playing footsie.
Police arrested a man known as the "Toe Suck Fairy" for allegedly harassing Arkansas women by talking about his attraction to their feet this month.
More than 10 years after he attained local infamy for sucking women's toes and threatening to amputate their feet, Michael Wyatt, 50 was behind bars again after two women claimed he asked to slurp on their digits, according to Conway Police Department Spokeswoman LaTresha Woodruff.
"The alleged Toe Sucker is now in custody," she said in an email to The Huffington Post. "Two women picked him from a photo line-up as the man who approached them in local stores commenting on their feet and asking to suck their toes."
Complaints from a third woman launched the hunt for a foot-fetish villain. While she sat outside her apartment, a stranger accosted her and forced her toes into his mouth, according to The Arkansas Democrat and Gazette. The two woman who eyeballed Wyatt came forward after hearing her account, Reuters reported.
The third woman didn't pick Wyatt out of the lineup, however, The Democrat and Gazette said.
Wyatt's racked up a lengthy rap sheet for foot-related crimes, news outlets reported. In 1990, he impersonated a podiatrist to fondle and suck a woman's foot in a department store. He was put on probation, fined and ordered to undergo therapy.
He struck again the following year. He served one year in prison for threatening a convenience store clerk that he'd chop off her foot and suck her toes while she bleeds to death.
He got in trouble again in 1999 for flashing photographs of women's feet to another woman and asking her if she'd him to cut off her feet.
Investigators considered Wyatt a suspect, because of his criminal past. It took them two weeks to track him down, however, Retuers said.
