    Daily Caller: Substitute teacher, 72, arrested for furiously masturbating in high school hallway (Feb 27 2014)

    Police say a school paraprofessional spotted Luecke doing the deed just after 7:30 a.m. The woman said she walked by Luecke as he was sitting in the hallway. She thought maybe he was hurt. When she approached him, she said, she realized that the 72-year old substitute teacher had his hand stuck down his pants and was “manipulating his penis.” The school paraprofessional then notified school officials, who notified police. At that point, school officials removed Luecke from the class he was calmly teaching.

    According to The Courant, surveillance video of the scene shows Luecke in a stairwell “suspiciously manipulating the front of his pants while looking at students in the courtyard.” The sub then vanishes behind some lockers for a moment. Then, he reappears, lying on his back on the floor, focused on the task at hand. At some point, the shocked paraprofessional discovered him — but not before a half dozen students stroll by.
