A man was charged with indecent exposure Wednesday after he reportedly showed his “glistening white buttocks” to another man in a bathroom stall at Northgate Mall, according to a Chattanooga Police Department arrest report.

Michael Vincent Devita, 20, began the conversation by asking if the man — who already was in a bathroom stall — was gay, according to the report. After the man said no, Devita asked if the man would perform oral sex on him, the report said.

When the man glanced to the bottom of the stall door, he saw Devita’s “glistening white buttocks protruding into his occupied stall,” the report states.

The man then left the bathroom and located mall security, according to the report.

When questioned by police, Devita said he “went too far,” according to the report.

He has since been released from jail, according to records.

So .. who coined the phrase "glistening white buttocks"? The perpetrator, the victim or the reporter?

esaletnik, well, the story answers your question.

Ha! That's hilarious.

It seems to me that whoever came up with such an elegant description of a mans behind, must have an affinity for such things.

So .. the cop must have asked the perpetrator to lower his pants otherwise he would have not known if his buttocks were both glistening and white.

Well L4F. It seems we have found the limits to your libertarianism. Govt should exist to stop people from having sex in public. Anything else it should do or is that about it?

It must be so hard for L4F to feel so put upon by society....I bet his glistening white buttocks are cinched up tight!

Ignore them, L4F. Your white buttocks ARE wonderful and will always be glistening to me.

May 19, 2011 at 5:55 p.m.

We can always count on someone (in Chattanooga) to make most anything "racial" on some of these posts. Devita is only 20 y/o and I wonder what type of future he has ahead!

L4F once made an extremely offensive comment comparing a woman breastfeeding to peeing and pooping in public - saying we don't have the "right" to do it - so not only is he a moron, but he's not even a good libertarian to not support a woman's right to feed her child. That's okay, I'll just let him scream the whole time in the restaurant instead.

He should have tried Mark Foley's style and just tapped his foot under the stall.

Here's how the conversation probably went . . . VICTIM: I say, officer, some wanton fellow has thrust his alabaster posterior at me as I set upon the loo. OFFICER: Goodness gracious, you mean his glistening white buttocks!? VICTIM: Indeed! He must have been one of those Libertarians!

As I understand Libertarianism, I get to do what I want and you get to do what I want.

I find I am jealous of the perp's buttock shine. Neither glistening white nor buttery brown, my buttocks are a disappointing dull color and far from glistening.

Does anyone know how to shine buttocks? Is waxing required, or is application of an ointment, creme or unguent to the buttocks the solution? Would periodic buffing of the buttocks help maintain a healthy buttock glow?

All I can say is some folks have all the luck. I'd pay for some glistening white, if I had any money. I'm speaking of teeth ya know. yea right.

L4F: I understand (maybe) and appreciate the concept of 'no harm'. If you could get even majority buy in, I'd support you. Unfortunately, we (society) can't even agree on the definition of 'harm'. You think public exposure is harmful; I see no harm in the human body. (OK, I'd better qualify that a little. At my age, even I don't want to see my body.)

Muhammad van blah blah blah, How do you know that the victim was white? Maybe he was a ignorant, racist, moron with a pillbox hat.

They say the guy in the stall got mooned from under the stall door? Duh, was the mooner a midget or a contortionist?
