There are three reasons — at least three — Edwin Charles Tobergta’s story is so fascinating.
1) The Hamilton man was arrested on allegations he had sex in public
2) His sex ‘partner’ was a rubber raft
3) This is not the first time he’s been arrested on charges related to sex in public with inflatables.
As Lauren Pack reports, Tobergta was arrested June 17 for allegedly stepping out his back door naked at about 1:20 p.m. and having “sexual relations with a rubber pool float,” according to the Hamilton police report.
In 2011, Tobergta was accused of having sex with a neighbor’s pool float. In 2002, a woman told police he did the same thing with an inflatable Halloween decoration in her yard.
The older incident apparently earned Tobergta a rather “interesting” nickname around Hamilton related to inflatable pumpkins.
As strange as the alleged behavior is, Tobergta is far from the only person to engage in shocking public sex. People have been caught in public having sex with everything from pasta sauce jars to park benches. The pasta sauce guy was driving and the park bench one had to be cut free.
Here are three that have made the news recently:
Sex with a couch
Gerard Streator avoid jail time last month after being caught by an off-duty cop in September having sex outside with an abandoned yellow couch on the curb, according to the Waukesha Patch in Wisconsin.
Sex with India
Cirilo Castillo Jr., 43, of Edinburg, Texas was charged earlier this month with criminal trespass and cruelty to animals on allegations he was videotaped performing oral and vaginal sex on a horse named India, according to The Monitor.
Castillo was freed from jail a few days before. He had been imprisoned for trespassing and public lewdness related to earlier sex with India.
As The Monitor reports, Texas does not have a law against sex with animals, but you CAN NOT trespass on someone’s property.
Sex with a bike
Police in Östersund, Sweden, are on the hunt for a man filmed having sex with a bike, The Local reported last month. The bike’s owner set up a camera to catch the person puncturing his tires.
A hooded man punctured the tires and can be seen in the footage posted to YouTube.com performing a sex act as the tire deflates.
“I am not scared of him, but mostly irritated over all the punctures I have had to fix,” Per Edström told the newspaper.
Police are trying to determine if the case is related to one from 2007 in which a 35-year-old was arrested on allegations he slashed the tires of 20 bikes and ejaculated on the seats.
