Busted for that wide-legged stance

imageSome guys just haven’t figured out that when the urge strikes, sometimes you might want to take a deep breath, keep your pants zipped and not indulge.

Ed Wall didn’t figure that out. Neither did Larry Craig. Or two guys in a stall at Philips Arena.

At Philips Arena, an officer working an extra job learned of “two males inside the restroom stall, masturbating.” The officer went to the restroom and found a 44-year-old man from Emporia, Va., in the stall with another man. When the Virginia man walked out, “I asked for some form of identification,” the officer wrote. “[He] gave me his first name and started running out the bathroom [and into] the arena.” The officer chased him, caught him and arrested him. No word on what happened to the other man inside the bathroom stall.

Philips Arena? That’s right.

What makes this story even more interesting is that for the last two months, most of the events at Philips have been Hawks games, Thrashers matches, pro wrestling and a Metallica concert. At least these two gay guys are breaking stereotypes. Well, some stereotypes.
