Seattle Scanner

JUNE 24--A Seattle man is facing an indecent exposure charge after allegedly walking into a grocery store and plopping his genitals atop the scanner at a self-checkout station, police report.

According to cops, Christian Fisher, 31, entered the Quality Food Center market around 5 PM Wednesday and proceeded to a self-checkout scanner. He then summoned over a female employee, a Seattle Police Department report states.

When the woman approached Fisher, cops noted, “she saw that his penis was out on the stand.” The employee said she “reacted with surprise,” which caused Fisher to laugh.

A male employee said that when he saw his female coworker “reacting to something on the checkout stand,” he “walked over to see what the issue was.” The “issue,” he told police, was Fisher’s penis, which was “resting on top of the scanner.” The suspect, the report notes, “was laughing and did not make any attempts to stow away his blatantly exposed genitalia.”

Fisher fled the business before cops arrived, but he returned to the market several hours later and was confronted by workers who recognized him from the earlier incident. Fisher, cops say, ignored employee demands that he leave the store and got into a shoving match with security trying to escort him from the premises.

Police subsequently collared Fisher about a block from the store. Told that he was under arrest for indecent exposure, Fisher “became agitated and yelled ‘I didn’t whip my cock out!’” He was later booked into the county jail on the misdemeanor count and an assault rap.

According to jail records, Fisher’s bust Wednesday night was his fourth arrest this month. He has previously been nabbed on burglary, assault, and obstruction charges.

Last month, an Ohio man was arrested after he allegedly stripped naked and defecated on a self-checkout scanner at a Kroger supermarket. Colin Murphy, 23, was arrested on disorderly conduct and public indecency charges. (3 pages)
