Alleged Public Masturbator Charged with Indecent Exposure

U of M police charged a Minneapolis man yesterday with two counts of indecent exposure.

In two separate occasions last week, a pair of U of M coeds claimed a middle-aged man sat next to them in the U's Walter Library and began masturbating. Police arrested David Lee Gatson Tuesday evening after the 39-year returned to the library, presumably intent on repeating his performance.

Gatson faces up to one year in prison and/or a fine of $3,000 for each count.
