Masturbating on the subway ended poorly for this transit cop

We could all learn a thing or two from this man.

Your job can be tedious, and sometimes it’s necessary to resort to extreme measures to the neverending hours. If your solution to this tedium is to masturbate, however, you should really think twice—especially if you are a transit police officer.

One such lawman in Philadelphia learned this lesson the hard way after a covert attempt at self-pleasuring inevitably went awry.

Kevin Fant, a 44-year-old police officer with the city’s mass transit system, SEPTA, was caught masturbating aboard a Broad Street Line subway train in August. While the 12-year veteran of the force was off-duty at the time, his impromptu session was secretly recorded by another rider. SEPTA officials learned of the incident in late October when a routine social media search about the transit system uncovered the video.

After positively identifying Fant, SEPTA placed him on administrative leave and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Public masturbation is nothing new in Philadelphia. In January, a man fleeing from police crashed his car in North Philadelphia and, as officers closed in, jumped out of the vehicle and furiously masturbated in front of a fast food restaurant .

This should be a lesson to employees everywhere: should you wish to engage in lewd behavior in an era where everything is being recorded, you should expect things to get messy.
