Man Charged for Giving Minnesota Officer "Wet Willie"

An intoxicated man home on leave from the Air Force thought it would be a good idea to give a Minnesota police officer a double "Wet Willie." It was not.

Riley Louis Swearingen, 24, pleaded guilty to disruptive intoxication Monday, KARE reports. Swearingen spent several days in jail before taking a plea deal to avoid felony charges for the early Saturday morning incident.

Minneapolis City Pages explains:

According to the criminal complaint, Mankato Department of Public Safety Police Sergeant Adam Gray was talking with a driver of a "drunk bus" in the city's entertainment district when he "felt two fingertips that were obvious to him as wet with saliva being pushed into his right and left ear canals, which caused pressure and discomfort in his ear canals."

The officer turned and saw a man later identified as Swearingen tell his friends, "I just gave the cop a wet Willie."

Initial charges against Swearingen included assaulting a police officer with bodily fluids, according to the Manakato Free-Press. The punishment for that felony is no doubt quite worse than a school detention, Huffington Post reports.

If some weirdo gave me a wet willy, he'd be lucky if he gets arrested.
Two rules(and they're simple):
1)Don't piss off the people who make your food
2)Don't f*** with someone who is on the clock

Officer should have given wet willie a dry billie to the balls.

Not a good place or time to be touching anyone let alone an Officer on duty. Drunk Bus or Train was always one place I tried to always keep my back to the access door. I worked the train(s) for 4 years. Nothing worse than drunk snorting burping spitting slobbering farting puking azz hats. Way to much secretions in them places. Damn glad I'm retired in todays skankier world.

Nasty and disgusting on SO MANY levels!!!

Just for personal safety reasons being aware of your personal space is essential in these times. Letting someone get that close also meant the officers weapon was also in jeopardy. Arresting the drunk for public intoxication or disorderly conduct did not really require admitting to the wet willie. In the past week many officers have had their personal space trespassed upon with dire consequences and I suspect this will get much worse before it gets better. So just endeavor not to get so distracted as to lose touch with your immediate personal space and safety.

"2)Don't f*** with someone who is on the clock"

Wrong, that's Don't F.... with someone who carries a GLOCK.
