An elderly Connecticut man has been charged with public indecency after getting caught on video shagging a shrub.
he recent story of the Florida man who was caught having sex with an alligator may have been a hoax, but there are plenty of weird sex-related crimes out there. Take, for instance, this 81-year old Stratford, Connecticut man who was caught on video performing a sex act with a bush.
81-year old Wallace Berg has been charged with public indecency after his neighbor caught the unspecified sex act on video and contacted the police. After filming the incident, the neighbor, who remains unidentified, confronted Berg. He was standing outside of his home, naked amongst the bushes, doing something unspeakable to the shrubbery.
Police say Berg immediately stopped the indecent behavior, covered himself with a grill cover, and apologized, before fleeing back inside his home.
According to the Associated Press, “Berg was charged with public indecency and second-degree breach of peace. He was released after posting a $10,000 bond and is due in Superior Court on Aug. 5.” Their report states.
“He did not immediately return a phone call Wednesday from the Associated Press seeking comment.”
The strange case is fascinating for all of the questions it begs: what specific sex act was Mr. Berg performing with the shrub? Is Mr. Berg attracted to plant life or was it merely a crime of opportunity? Can shrubbery consent? If so, what new laws should be put in place to ensure their rights aren’t violated?
Only time will tell. In the meantime, be wary of what’s behind the bushes.
