In-Flight Masturbator Cops Federal Plea For Illegally Joining Mile High Club

The Florida man who “masturbated to the point of ejaculation” during a recent United Airlines flight pleaded guilty Friday to a federal criminal charge, according to court records.

Kyle Pearce, 25, copped a misdemeanor plea during an appearance in U.S. District Court in Denver, Colorado. He faces a maximum of 90 days in jail, a year of supervised release, and a maximum $5000 fine when sentenced August 19.

Pearce, pictured at right, was arrested by FBI agents after he made an “obscene and indecent exposure of his person” during a May 19 flight to Denver from Spokane, Washington. According to an FBI affidavit, an 18-year-old woman who was seated next to Pearce told investigators, “I sat next to a man on a plane who was masterbating [sic]. I heard a noise and looked over and saw his penis.”

The teenager continued, “He ejaculated & got some on the seat. Then he went to the bathroom for a long time.”

A second passenger, Grayson Miller, corroborated the woman’s account. Miller, 18, recalled, “My friend Zach turned to me and said, ‘That man is masturbating’ and in disbelief, I looked and saw his penis and he was.” In a written statement, Miller added, “I hit him with my book in the arm, which caused him to stop and leave to the bathroom.”

Pearce remains free on $25,000 unsecured bond. As part of his conditions of release, Magistrate Judge Kathleen Tafoya ordered last month that he undergo “mental health and counseling” treatment.

Actually you failed in a completely cowardly way; couldn't even use your handle in that brilliant retort. No thought at all, just more of the same. It's a lot easier to react with a thoughtless flame job than to write a well thought counterpoint so I guess that's just par for the course here. But, hey, resume baiting each other like a bunch of Internet tough guys long on false bravado and short on facts. I guess it makes you feel like a better person, huh?
@BrianKB Don't waste your time here. Just read the articles and have a laugh. You can read the comments if you are so inclined, but don't expect anything coherent. And don't even try to argue, that's the biggest waste of time ever. And always remember, arguing on the internet is like the Special Olympics: even if you win, you are still retarded. fm
Of course you're right and my rational side knows this. I guess I'd had enough of the douchebaggery and couldn't help myself. I should have known better. That's ok, I said my peace and stand by it 100%. Cheers!
I've been reading TSG's reports of humanity's shenanigans for a while now and finally registered just so I could make this comment. What the *** is wrong with you regular commenters? I've never seen any thread anywhere in which a post completely unrelated to anything political is almost always seized upon by such a collection of half wit trolls to use in ignorant attacks of "the other side." Do you honestly BELIEVE the shiat you write? Are you so intellectually challenged that you can't do ANYTHING but spew the idiotic sound bites from Fox News or MSNBC? At least the partisan hacks you parrot (poorly) in your inane spew here KNOW they're partisan hacks presenting half-truths to a gullible electorate. If you weren't so intellectually dishonest at best or simply remarkably stupid at worst, you wouldn't post the BS you post. How about a little critical thinking and civility? Do you children think you can handle that?
Hey, you're the one bringing politics into this one.
No, Mo ma did. I'm far from a Tea Party supporter and he's not even the most flagrant violator of what I was griping about. I guess his was just the "last straw" for me. I wasn't singling him out, which was why I didn't post that as a reply to him (her?).
I see you're right about Mo ma starting it. The funny comments are fun to read and I think the arguments do get out of hand because some people don't want to debate....they just want to be nasty and use insulting language. But BrianKB, politics naturally come into play here on this website because the articles are about the sad and sick state our society is in today. You can sit back and tsk, tsk, tsk all you want, but there are those of us who would like it to stop and we won't see any improvement until we try to do something about it. Apathy is a bad thing for a country going downhill and it can't be denied that it is because these articles are proof. It's ridiculous to negatively comment about the situations in the articles and then not try to analyze the problem and try to offer a solution.
Good, when he gets out of jail, perhaps he can run for Congress on the Tea Bagger ticket.
That makes no sense at all. How does the Tea party fit into this? What Tea party candidate has been accused of being involved in a sex scandal? There you go, again....making stuff up about people just because you don't agree wtih their politics which is pretty telling being that a Democrat sex perv is in the spotlight right, now. There, BrianKB, how's that for getting the political ball rolling?
