Lenni Todd, a 58-year-old news cameraman for Pittsburgh’s WTAE (an ABC affiliate), was arrested on misdemeanor sexual assault charges after he groped a woman under the guise of filming a story. What follows is the work of a horny criminal mastermind.
Officers said Todd arrived in a station vehicle and had equipment with company logos. However, police said they later learned Todd was off-duty at the time of the alleged incident.
Police said Todd lied to the woman, saying he was going to film her for a story and that part of the story would be shared with the Animal Planet network.
According to police documents, the woman said Todd placed his hand inside her shirt and then grabbed her bare buttocks. Todd is also accused of taking photographs as her shirt was lifted up and as her pants were pulled down. [WPXI]
Don’t take this the pervy way, but MAN do I wish I had been there. Not for the groping, but for that legendary ruse to fondle a woman. “Excuse me, ma’am? I’m from a local news affiliate, and Animal Planet wanted me to record some footage of me groping you. Now if you’ll just lift up your shirt…”
