Drunkenly Groping A Cardboard Display Woman Will Get You In Trouble

Can we just say right off the bat it’s a better a cardboard woman than a real one? A convicted sex offender in Pittsfield, Mass., has been fined after he reportedly kissed and fondled a cardboard cut out of a woman at a Rite Aid.

The man pleaded guilty to a single count of disturbing the peace, subsequent offense, and was ordered to pay a $200, reports the Berkshire Eagle.

Officials say the man, allegedly intoxicated at the time of the incident, entered the Rite Aid and “grabbed hold of the sunglass display, hugged it tightly and then began to lick and kiss the face of the female party on the display.” He kept up the snog session for a minute before falling to the floor and began screaming.

Not surprisingly, fellow customers were a bit disturbed and fled the scene. The man was arrested shortly after. He’s a level 3 sex offender, which means he’s considered to be a high risk for re-offending.

Again, at least this was just an offense against a not-real person.
