The Bay City Times reports that Peterson, a registered sex offender following a 2003 criminal sexual conduct conviction, drove up to the window of a Bay City McDonald’s and ordered a McDouble. When the employee working the booth—the store’s manager—returned to hand Peterson his change, she saw that he had exposed himself and was masturbating.
According to the police report obtained by the Bay City Times, the manager told officers, “I was in shock when I saw it. He said, ‘Have a nice day.’ Then he drove away.”
Peterson then reportedly circled back minutes later, driving through and ordering from the window again. He exposed himself and masturbated in front of another female employee, who alerted the manager. They had Peterson park, telling him they were waiting on fries to finish cooking, while they called police. Officers reportedly found Peterson in his parked car with his pants unzipped.
Well, at least he was polite.
Cory D., the Peterson in question, was sentenced to 2 years of probation after pleading no contest to a charge of indecent exposure and ordered to enter an outpatient sex offender rehab program. He was also ordered to pay $1,535 in fees and fines, or about the equivalent of a week’s worth of McDonald’s.
