Sex Freak
Sandy Wong gets turned on by expensive and classic cars, motorcycles and women with big feet and really likes to expose himself in public. Unfortunately, the 45-year-old Edmonton man's sexual deviancy has led to him "pleasuring" himself while sitting on the roof of cars, including a BMW on display at the Home and Garden Show at the Northlands AgriCom.
Court heard Wong was observed checking out three BMW vehicles on display at the Home and Garden Show on March 22. Then, he was seen sitting on the roof of a 2007 BMW 328i sedan, valued at $50,000. Shortly after that, Wong had dropped his sweatpants to his ankles and was spotted masturbating while sitting with his legs dangling over the driver's door window. Security eventually detained Wong until police showed up and a cleanup crew had to wash down the BMW.
