A Wisconsin man was arrested after authorities discovered that he was engaging in some curious relations with an abandoned couch, according to The Smoking Gun. Forty-six-year-old Gerard Streator, a hotel worker from Waukesha, was reportedly observed by local police “thrusting” into a yellow sofa that had been abandoned on the side of the road. Since engaging in public sexual activity with furniture isn’t something authorities want to encourage, the man is now facing jail time.
The couch fetishist is now facing charges of lewd and lascivious behavior, which could ultimately land the guy behind bars for nine months. Additionally, Streator could face a hefty fine for engaging in bizarre sexual conduct with the abandoned couch.
According to AOL Travel, the whole exchange began when an officer spotted the offender hanging around a sofa left on the side of the road. “At 11 pm, September 3, the off-duty Waukesha police officer was out for a jog on North University Drive near Pebble Valley Road when he spotted an abandoned yellow couch on the curb,” the criminal complaint reads.
After getting closer to the couch and its lover, the officer observed Streator “thrusting his hips as if he was having sex with a person.” When the cop asked what the guy was doing, the suspect allegedly sprinted back to his apartment.
Police returned to Steator’s apartment the next day in an effort to get to the bottom of this very bizarre case. It was around this time that authorities questioned the suspect’s wife. “She said police were there the night before, but her husband had done nothing wrong,” the complaint reads. “Police then went to Country Springs Hotel where Streator works and asked him about the incident. Police then went to Country Springs Hotel where Streator works and asked him about the incident.”
Regardless of whether or not the suspect was engaging in a little abandoned couch sex, Gerard Streator will have to address the matter in court on October 1.
