A man who pulled out his penis and started stroking it in front of a woman on a New York City subway, then pulled a gun on a man who followed him while recording, telling the man to “turn around and mind your own fucking business,” turned out to be a retired NYPD cop.
Although Esposito admitted to pulling out his penis, he claims he was only peeing on the subway platform in Midtown, not masturbating.
So either way, we can refer to him as the Midtown Masturbator or Esposito the Exposer, depending on which story you believe.
The 56-year-old retired cop, who admitted to pulling out his gun on the man, was charged with misdemeanor public lewdness and menacing on Wednesday.
He is also probably collecting a pension, which means the NYPD cannot distance themselves from him as much as they would like.
And it’s not like it’s rare for a cop to be caught masturbating or exposing themselves in public.
And another New Jersey cop named Jason Miller was arrested earlier this year for pulling men over, walking up to their cars and placing his exposed genitals in their faces before letting them go without writing a ticket.
In the latest case out of New York City, Esposito is accused of hissing at a woman, prompting her to turn and look, which was when she saw him masturbating.
The 38-year-old woman began crying, drawing the attention of a 41-year-old man who asked her what was wrong.
When she told him, that man began chasing Esposito out of the subway station, pulling out his phone to record.
