My first thought when I saw the headline Passenger Arrested For Masturbating “Up To Three Hours” During Megabus Trip was damn, that’s got to be some kind of record. Turns out The Smoking Gun thinks so too, and if they think it’s a record, it’s probably a record. They’re pretty good at this stuff.
So yeah, a guy played with himself for close to three hours on a bus trip. Why? Because he assumed that the horrified silence of the nearby female passenger as he did so meant she was appreciative and enjoying it, that’s why. If you’ve been following along with these types of stories for any length of time (you might not even need three hours), you’ll recognize that as a pretty common refrain.
According to a criminal complaint, officers were told that passenger Telly Shadell Corey, 41, “was on the bus with his penis exposed to a female passenger that was terrified.”
A subsequent investigation determined that Corey initially “played with his penis in his sweatpants.” He then “ended up exposing his penis and masturbating for up to three hours because he thought the victim was enjoying it.”
After being read his rights, Corey reportedly copped to the marathon pleasure session and told police he thought “since the victim didn’t say anything to him she was enjoying it.”
Corey was charged with indecent exposure. He is currently locked up in of all places the Johnson County jail in lieu of $2500 bond.
By the way, if you’re wondering what’s up with the title I put on this post, I can explain. No, it’s not a weird copy and paste accident. That’s a quote from the Megabus website.
