My friend was recently locked up for 40 days for this: He made a whacking off gesture to someone in public and someone calls the cops on him for masturbating in public. The cop shows up to find my friend's zipper down, because his jeans have a faulty zipper, and apparently that is enough to convince a jury that he was indeed jacking off in public. One of the homeless guys is in cahoots with the police department because the lady cop gave the dude a case of beer for reporting my friend. Both of the homeless eye witnesses have felony charges against them and there is no hard evidence that proves anything, and he was locked up. Innocent until proven guilty is out the window.
