Straaaaange cases: Toying with teddy bears

By JohnnyZ on August 23, 2013//Leave a comment

It has been reported that for the fourth time in the past two years, a Cincinnati man has been arrested for indecent behavior in public with the aid of a teddy bear.


Municipal Court records show that Charles Marshall has already been convicted three times of engaging in public indecency/disorderly conduct with a teddy bear. The misdemeanor counts resulted in short jail sentences and small fines.


Marshall was first busted in February 2010 when witnesses spotted him engaged “with a teddy bear in mens bathroom” at a public library (which prompted a judge to order him to “stay away from all Hamilton Co. public libraries”).


It is unclear whether cops this week seized the teddy bear  in question (or even if they would want to). If so, people in Cincinnati  should think twice before buying cuddly animals at their local Toys “R” Us stores. Just sayin.
