Florida man arrested after ‘masturbating outside with a pickle shoved up his bum’

A man was arrested after he was allegedly caught masturbating outside someone’s home – while shoving a pickle up his bum.

Shocked onlookers reported Eric Detiege, 47, to the police after they allegedly saw him pleasuring himself in Oldsmar City in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, on March 15.

He was allegedly lying on his back on the grass outside a townhouse where people could still see him performing the sex act.

Witnesses reported that the alleged perv had his pants down while holding his penis with one hand and a large uneaten pickle’ in the other, which he was inserting into his bottom.

Detiege reportedly had the words ‘Only God Can Judge Me’ tattooed on his arm.

The cop who responded to the scene said in the arrest report that Detiege was ‘using the pickle to penetrate his rectum while he was masturbating’.

He wrote: ‘I was dispatched to a suspicious person while circulating the area I observed the defendant at private premises on Cutlass Way.

‘I observed the defendant lying flat on his back, no pants or undergarments on his bottom half. Eric had his penis in one hand and a large uneaten pickle in the other.’

The pickle, used as an accessory to the crime, was not taken by the police to use as evidence.

Detiege was taken to the police station to face charges of misdemeanor, particularly the exposure of sexual organs which carries a punishment of up to one year in jail, one-year probation, and up to 1,000 USD fine.

He will then be held in the Pinellas County jail on a 150 USD bond while investigations are ongoing.

Aside from his current case, the man was previously convicted for theft, disorderly conduct, resisting police, and criminal mischief.
