An Iowa man was arrested Tuesday night for measuring his penis with a cardboard ruler while he was standing at a urinal inside the University of Iowaâ€™s Main Library’s bathroom back on May 7th.
42-year-old Thomas Morgan was inside the restroom when he partially turned his body towards the victim/witness who’d been using another urinal in the bathroom. He then, according to a criminal complaint,Â â€œmeasured his penis against a cardboard ruler.â€.
The victim told an officer that Mr. Morgan then â€œmade a comment regarding his size.â€ The unnamed man added that on top of two of the urinals were cardboard rulers with â€œdark sharpie markings regarding penis size.â€
The victim told authorities that he â€œfelt weird and uncomfortableâ€ seeing the suspectâ€™s â€œsemi erect penis.â€
During questioning, Morgan is said to have admitted that he’d measured himself with the ruler. He denied, however, â€œbeing arousedâ€.
He was, charged with misdemeanor indecent exposure and booked into the Johnson County jail before being released a short time later.
His court date is scheduled for a September 23rd and he’s been ordered to have no contact with the victim.
