Weird Teacher Watch: John Socrates Caught Masturbating At Rest Stop
Wednesday, April 21, 2010 at 9:00 am
On Saturday morning, 47-year-old Socrates rose early and headed out of his New Jersey home, not for a morning jog, but something equally invigorating...though a lot less tasteful.
The Jackson Elementary School teacher got in his car and drove to a rest area on the Garden State Parkway, where he parked his car and proceeded to masturbate near the men's restroom for everyone to see.
It was 9 a.m. when police were surveilling the area and caught Socrates mid-masturbation. Of course, he was promptly arrested and charged with lewd behavior. When police checked his car, they also found marijuana, adding a drug charge to his tally.
Why Socrates thought it a good idea to jack off in public on a Saturday morning, we can't really say, hence the "Weird" in "Weird Teacher Watch." Hey, at least we got to write a sentence like: "Why Socrates thought it a good idea to jack off in public..." For that, we are eternally grateful.
What we do know is that Socrates will likely be waving good-bye to his job as a second-grade teacher at Howard Johnson Elementary School, where he's been teaching for the past six years.
