Octogenarian accused of performing sex act with a SHRUBBERY

Possible inspiration for character of Roger the Shrubber revealed

SFW An 81-year-old man from Stratford, Connecticut, has been charged with public indecency after performing a sex act with a shrubbery.

The Connecticut Post reported that Wallace Berg, of Russell Road, is facing charges of second-degree breach of the peace and public indecency after being caught "humping" a shrubbery.

The local plod told the Post that they received a call from a neighbour of Mr Berg, who complained that the octogenarian was strolling about his own backyard in the nude.

A recording of Mr Berg's actions, taken by his neighbour and seen by the police, showed the man engaged with the plant in a manner which the plod would later describe as constituting "an incident".

The rozzers reported to the Post that the neighbour confronted Berg who, upon being startled, reportedly: "Stopped the indecent behaviour, covered himself with a grill cover, apologised to him and then went into the house."

The police stated that Berg, who would have been engaged with the shrubbery in full view of any bystanders, was released after posting a $10,000 bail surety. ®
