A Bizarre Story

This story happened sometime last year but I only came across it yesterday (Webpage, posted November 21, 2010). It started off as a typical incident at a typical US airport but it had a bizarre twist. A 47 year old gay man was arrested at San Francisco International Airport after ejaculating while being patted down by a male TSA agent. Percy Cummings, an interior designer from San Francisco, is being held without bail after the alleged incident, charged with “sexually assaulting” a Federal agent.

According to Cummings’ partner, Sergio Armani, Cummings has penis piercings and that is what set off the alarm during a full body scan. As a result, Cummings was pulled aside for a pat-down. Armani stated that the unidentified TSA agent spent “an inordinate amount of time groping” Cummings, who had apparently become sexually aroused. And why not? If somebody starts messing with your dick, of course you’re gonna get very aroused and ejaculate. Even unfortunate for Cummings, he had a history of sexual dysfunction. Anyway, he ejaculated as the TSA agent’s hand was feeling the piercings. The TSA agent, according to several witnesses, promptly called for back up. Cummings was thrown to the ground and handcuffed.

A TSA spokesperson declined to comment on this specific case, but said that anyone ejaculating during a pat-down would be subject to arrest. That’s why I find this story strange. Cummings got himself into trouble because he ejaculated – and thereafter, he had a sexual assault charge hanging over his head. But seriously, shouldn’t it be the other way round? Shouldn’t the TSA fella be charged for assaulting Cummings? Think about it…

This story is so bizarre that I am not even sure if it is a true story!
