Natural gratification

A 30-year-old man was taken into custody on May 27 after he was caught “handling himself” during a late night visit to Bensonhurst’s Lt. Joseph Petrocino Park.

Police said that they spotted Jeremias Garcia sitting on a bench inside the park on New Utrecht Avenue, which is near 70th Street, at 11:30 pm and were about to nab him for being in a public park after dusk, but quickly learned he was otherwise engaged — he was playing with himself.

Cops told Garcia to button up and attempted to take him into custody, but he refused to comply with the cops. He was ultimately arrested after a brief struggle, charged with resisting arrest, public lewdness and criminal possession of a weapon — a gravity knife cops found in his bag.
