Air Force Member Arrested After Giving Minnesota Cop A "Wet Willy"
An intoxicated member of the Air Force was arrested early Saturday after he gave a Minnesota cop a double “wet Willy,” according to cops.
As a Mankato Department of Public Safety officer was speaking with a municipal bus driver around 2:20 AM, the cop “felt two fingertips that were obvious to him as wet with saliva being pushed into his right and left ear canals,” according to a probable cause statement.
The officer turned around and saw a tall white male walking away. “I just gave the cop a wet Willie,” the suspect said as he joined a group of his friends.
The officer confronted the man, later identified as Riley Swearingen, a 23-year-old who was home on leave from his post at North Carolina’s Seymour-Johnson Air Force Base.
Swearingen, pictured at right, told the cop that the “wet Willy” was a joke for which he was sorry. Swearingen, who smelled of booze and appeared drunk, was then arrested. When asked what would happen if he gave a “wet Willy” to a military superior, Swearingen “admitted it would be a very big deal.”
Swearingen was charged with felony assault on a cop, misdemeanor assault, and disruptive intoxication. During a court appearance yesterday, Swearingen pleaded guilty to the drunk charge and was sentenced to the three days he had already spent in custody.
