He Should Have Hung the 'Please Don't Charge Into My Room and Have Me Arrested on a Ridiculous Sex Charge' Sign


The Telegraph reports that a Scottish man has to register as a sex offender after being caught trying to ride his bicycle at a hotel in Aur:

[A prosecutor] said: "They [two members of the cleaning staff] knocked on the door several times and there was no reply.

"They used a master key to unlock the door and they then observed the accused wearing only a white T-shirt, naked from the waist down.

"The accused was holding the bike and moving his hips back and forth as if to simulate sex."

Both witnesses, who were extremely shocked, notified the hotel manager, who in turn alerted the police.

Although the incident occurred a year ago, the man pleaded guilty to "sexual breach of the peace" last week. "How do you have sex with a bicycle?" wonders the Telegraph's Bryony Gordon, and so do I. More than that, though, I wonder why it's the government's business what a man does with a bike in the privacy of his hotel room. I mean, as long as it's not a children's bike.
