NY subway perv 'really is a w*nker'

Flashing net celeb laments fate

Security for virtualized datacentres

NSFW The NY subway pervert who exposed his meat to a 22-year-old web developer - only to be caught mid-five-knuckle-shuffle on her mobile's camera and subsequently splashed across the net - has revealed his true colours in an astounding interview with New York Magazine.

The perpetrator was quickly fingered as 43-year-old Dan Hoyt, the owner of two veggie restaurants called Quintessence, who'd already served two days' community service for "public lewdness" on the subway in 1994.

He's now awaiting sentencing on the second rap, for which he'll probably walk away with two years' probation. In the meantime, he's undergoing to court-ordered counselling, but says the sessions are "a little long-winded". Accordingly, he's also getting stuck into some "Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing" (EMDR) which he reckons will remove "emotional problems like stains from a shirt".

Well, if the end of the interview is anything to go by, Hoyt has plenty of EMDR ahead of him before his shirt emerges even remotely squeaky clean. Regarding his victim, Thao Nguyen, Hoyt claims she "humiliated him by posting his picture on the web". He further laments: "It's one thing to take it to the police. But on the internet, I read a lot of people saying, 'That was not too cool of her. That was really screwed up'."

He concludes by claiming that if he and Nguyen met under different circumstances (when he wasn't beating his meat, presumably), then things might turn out differently: "You know, she'd go, 'That guy’s pretty cool. He's got this restaurant, and he's fun'," Hoyt claims, adding: "She'd probably want to go out with me."

We'll leave it to one blogger to sum this one up: "Subway Wanker Really Is A Wanker" reads the headline. Back to your EMDR, matey, and keep your hands where we can see 'em. ®
