Dude caught masturbating on plane listening to iPod.

A 42-year-old Kentucky man faces federal charges after several witnesses aboard a flight from Louisville to Denver International Airport told an FBI agent that they saw him exposed and touching himself, according to an arrest affidavit.

Alan Michael Froula was charged Tuesday in federal court with unlawfully and knowingly making a lewd, obscene and indecent act on an aircraft. The incident allegedly took place Saturday on a Frontier Airlines flight. Froula was wearing a polo shirt, khaki shorts, sunglasses and had an iPod strapped to his arm, the affidavit said. But a passenger alerted a flight attendant that his genitals were sticking out of his shorts, the report said.

Two other passengers told police that Froula fondled himself throughout the flight. "He was smiling and seemed to be enjoying himself," one of the passengers said in a police report. Froula was arrested at the airport and later posted $20,000 bail. » Article here

Dude charged for extorting $20,000 from his mom by threatening to kidnap her cat

A man has been charged with extorting more than $20,000 from his elderly mother by repeatedly threatening to kidnap her beloved cat and demanding ransom, police said. Garry Lamar, 47, was arrested Friday and released on $200 bail. He has been ordered to stay away from his 78-year-old mother, Mary Lamar Grancher.

He started threatening to kidnap his the cat just over a year ago, after his mother kicked him out of her home, accusing him of abuse, Police Sgt. Daniel Ormond said.

"This isn't just a family cat," Ormond said. "She actually called this cat her companion since she lived alone." During the past year, Lamar allegedly kidnapped the cat once and made kidnapping threats on an almost weekly basis, Ormond said. Police don't believe the cat was harmed but are continuing to investigate.

Grancher made at least two dozen payments totaling more than $20,000 in cash and checks to her son. Authorities are still sorting through her financial records to determine the precise amount. » Article here
