Daniel Michael, Florida Man, Caught Masturbating On Amtrak: Claims Ejaculation Was An Accident, Was Itching Stomach [MUG SHOT]

A Florida man was arrested after he allegedly masturbated on an Amtrak train and walked to the bathroom in the view of a 3-year-old child in Volusia County.

Daniel Michael, 33, of Marathon, Fla., denied the allegations to authorities, telling the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office that his blanket was moving up and down because his stomach was itchy. He then said he “might have accidentally ejaculated on the bathroom floor,” WFTV reported.

Michael was arrested on charges of lewd or lascivious exhibition, according to the station.

A passenger who spoke with authorities who arrived on the scene in Deland, Fla., said Michael was still exposed and walked to the bathroom to continue masturbating, in view of a child, the Sun-Sentinel reported.

"When deputies got to the station at 9:16 a.m. [Tuesday], the train had arrived and they talked to a passenger in the coach section who said that while he was trying to sleep, Michael was (performing a sex act) in the seat next to him," the police report stated, according to the Orlando Sentinel. "The witness said Michael then got up while still exposed and walked down the aisle to the bathroom to finish the act, passing by a small child along the way who appeared to be around 3 years old. Michael's explanation was that his covers were moving back and forth because his stomach was itchy."

Michael was arrested and taken to the Volusia County Jail in Daytona Beach, where he was held on $20,000 bail, WFTV reported.
