A Tampa Bay area man was arrested for allegedly masturbating on private property with an “uneaten pickle” inserted in his rectum on Sunday afternoon.
Oldsmar Police in Pinellas County, Florida, accuse Eric L. Detiege, 47, of lying in the yard of a townhouse while pleasuring himself with one hand and a pickle in the other, according to an arrest complaint originally published by the Smoking Gun. The man faces a charge of Exposure of Sexual Organs, a misdemeanor in Florida. Detiege is reportedly being held in custody on a $150 bond.
The suspect reportedly holds a criminal record for resisting police, disorderly conduct, theft, and criminal mischief.
The arresting officer notes the incident occurred around 4pm local time on Sunday.
The criminal complaint notes that Detiege was not armed with a firearm and there is no mention of the pickle being taken as evidence. The report also notes the suspect did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The arresting officer did not draw a conclusion if there were signs of mental illness.
The complaint states the DOJ’s Division of Criminal Investigation began the investigation into Blomme through a “CyberTip” provided by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
According to the “tip,” a Kik messaging application user known as “dommasterbb,” uploaded child pornography images and videos “on 27 separate occasions in October and November of 2020.”
The complaint continues:
Those files were sent to other Kik users through private chat messages or shared in a messaging group. The email used for registering the Kik account “dommasterbb” was identified in the CyberTip as “firstname.lastname@example.org.” This email address associated with the “dommasterbb” Kik account was listed as “verified” by Kik.
The complaint notes Kik provided several Internet Protocol (IP) addresses used by “dommasterbb” to upload and share pornographic images and videos.
A special agent with the DOJ discovered two of the IP addresses were provided by a Milwaukee County government building.
According to a press release at the DOJ, each of the seven counts of possession of child pornography “requires a mandatory minimum prison sentence of 3 years initial confinement,” the release added.
The complaint includes explicit descriptions of adult sexual acts with minors, including “toddler” age.
“Based upon records linking those uploads to the defendant, DOJ investigators obtained search warrants for the defendant, his chambers, his vehicle, and his residences in Milwaukee and Dane Counties,” the DOJ’s statement said.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinelreported prior to his election to the court in 2020, Blomme, a longtime LGBTQ activist, served as president and CEO of the Cream City Foundation, which distributes grants to LGBTQ groups in the Milwaukee area.
The foundation’s website removed their Drag Queen Story Hours page. The web archive of the page states the children’s event “captures the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”
The mission of Drag Queen Story Hours, according to the Cream City Foundation, is to provide “a fun and entertaining way to educate all ages about progressive social justice & human growth and development issues through literature and reading.”
The Sentinel reports Blomme is married to his male partner. They have two children and own two homes, one in Milwaukee and the other in the Madison area.
During his election campaign for circuit judge, Blomme ran as a liberal challenger to former Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s appointee, Paul Dedinsky.
“I’m the progressive alternative,” Blomme said during his campaign. “He’s self-identified as a Walker guy, a Walker judge. My career has been working for the most marginalized in the community. I’ll put my record up against his any day of the week.”
