Psych Eval Ordered

MARCH 8--A judge today ordered a psychological evaluation to help determine the competency of a Florida Man charged with having sexual contact with a pair of large stuffed animals at a Target store, court records show.

During a Circuit Court hearing this afternoon, Judge Cathy Ann McKyton appointed a psychologist to examine Cody Meader, 22, who has been charged with criminal mischief and exposure of sexual organs, both misdemeanors.

A further hearing on Meader’s ability to stand trial has been scheduled for next month.

As detailed in police and court records, a Target loss prevention officer told cops that he watched as Meader took a stuffed unicorn to the children’s bedding department, where he exposed himself and “took the unicorn and placed it against his penis and began a sexual motion like the subject was trying to have sex with the unicorn.”

The Target employee said that when he walked into the aisle where Meader (seen above) was, the suspect “stopped and placed the unicorn back on the shelf.”

Meader, wearing shorts and a Star Wars t-shirt, then went to the front of the St. Petersburg store and “picked up an Olaf snowman stuffed animal and began having sex with this stuffed animal and it was all on video,” according to the Target worker’s witness statement. “The subject finished having sex with the stuffed animal and ejaculated on it and then wiped it off.”

While Meader was engaged with the Olaf doll, police were already en route to the store, which is about 10 miles from the defendant’s residence. As seen above, a store surveillance camera recorded Meader’s interaction with Olaf, a character from the Disney movie “Frozen.”

After watching the video, a cop reported that Meader could be seen “on top of the Olaf doll behind the table display. He was face down and appearing to be ‘humping’ the doll.” When Meader was finished, the cop added, he “got up off the floor and wiped the doll off on the front of his shorts.”

Upon being read his rights, Meader “admitted to doing ‘stupid stuff’ and admitted that he had ‘nutted’ on the Olaf stuffed animal,” according to an arrest affidavit. As seen in images below and at left, police photographed both stuffed animals before the merchandise was “destroyed due to circumstances.”

If Meader’s case proceeds to trial, prosecutors have said they will seek to introduce evidence showing that the Target incident was not the first time he engaged in such illicit activity. Years earlier, police were called to a Walmart in Clearwater to formally trespass Meader from the store. A loss prevention officer told officers that Meader, then a juvenile, was “performing sexual acts with stuff animals located in the store,” according to a Clearwater Police Department report.
