Cody Meader was arrested after police said he masturbated onto a stuffed animal at a Target store in Pinellas Park, Florida.
The toy in question was a plush “Olaf” character from the Disney movie Frozen. For those who haven’t seen the movie, Olaf is the (adorable) snowman that Elsa and Anna first created as children.
Police said Meader, 20, carried out the sex act during regular business hours at the store on October 22, 2019. He was arrested and charged with criminal mischief.
