Roosevelt Allen Douglas II Masturbates Next To Girl, Says He Just Had Hole In His Pants: Cops

There was a big hole in his alibi.

Roosevelt Allen Douglas II, of Hawthorne, Fla., is accused of masturbating in front of a 12-year-old girl, but police say he told them he was just trying to fix a hole in his pants, according to an arrest report obtained by the Gainesville Sun.

Douglas, 32, was at the home of the girl on Wednesday, when he allegedly started masturbating in front of her, then showed her some inappropriate text messages.

The girl told police that when she left the room, he followed her outside, and later called her and asked her to not tell anyone about what happened.

Douglas' version of he story, according to the report, is that he had accidentally flashed the girl due to a hole in his pants, and he was only touching himself to try and fix the situation. He also allegedly stated that he had shown the girl a text message he had sent to someone else.

He was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious exhibition.

This isn't the first time someone accused of masturbating in the wrong place has blamed a clothing malfunction.

In January, police say a Pennsylvania man caught masturbating next to a convenience store told them that his penis was only out because his pants had shrunk.

It's worth noting, though, that sometimes crazy-sounding excuses are true. Last October, a Florida man was accused of masturbating while sitting in his car in a parking lot. He told police he was really just scratching at a rash on his testicles, and went so far as to offer to show them proof. An officer agreed, and verified that the suspect did indeed have a rash.
