Ohio man cuffed AGAIN for shagging inflatable pool raft

In deep water for persistent plastic-bothering

The Ohio plastic lover arrested back in 2011 for engaging in "sexual activity" with a pink inflatable swimming pool raft has been cuffed again for the same offence.

Edwin Tobergta, 35, was taken into custody on Wednesday after witnesses claimed to have clocked him naked and "performing simulated sex acts with a pink raft" on the side of a public highway in Hamilton.

According to WKRC, he was charged with "public indecency and contempt of court", the latter for previously failing to show up before the beak on other charges.

Indeed, Tobergta was hauled into court last year for a "similar" pool raft outrage, this time in front of a mother and her eight-year-old daughter.

On that occasion, he told the judge: "I do want to apologize for my actions. I am very sorry I do deal with mental issues. And if the court will give me the chance ... I will give it 100 per cent. I am ready to get my life together and quit all this nonsense."

The court decided not to give Tobergta a chance, and jailed him for 11 months. He was released last month.

In 2011, his grandmother Linda Tobergta explained: "He has a lot of mental problems and he's always had a fascination for plastic. That's just it. That's all of it. We never could get the proper care for Edwin. It's like nobody cares."

Sadly if Tobergta's found to have persisted with pool raft bothering, he might land up with a felony charge, rather than professional help. ®
