Cinephile Nabbed After Al Fresco Screening

Cops: Virginia man projected porno on garage door

FEBRUARY 8--A Virginia man is behind bars after projecting a porno film on his garage door in full view of his neighbors, police allege.

Antonio Smallwood, 41, was arrested Wednesday evening in connection with the al fresco 7 PM screening on a tidy Newport News street. A patrolman responded to the block after a 911 call reported "pornographic material being displayed," cops say.

"Upon arrival, the officer observed a movie involving sexual activity being projected on the garage door of the residence," according to police. At that point, a cop sought to serve Smallwood with a summons. But when the film enthusiast refused to sign the summons, he was arrested.

Charged with obscene sexual display and obstruction of justice, Smallwood was booked into the local jail.

Smallwood, who is being held without bond, is scheduled for a March 8 court appearance.

Seen above, Smallwood used a home cinema projector to screen the adult movie, details of which have not been released by investigators.

The projector remains on the front porch of Smallwood’s home since he was collared by Newport News Police Department officers before getting the chance to return the equipment indoors.
