Imagine you're shopping for shoes and a strange man asks you if you'd like some help trying on a pair. Okay, you probably think, the guy isn't wearing a name tag but I guess he's just a helpful salesman? Oh, but then he begins nonchalantly placing your toes into his mouth so he can suck on them.
Sure doesn't happen every day, does it? But when it does, as it did to Erika Porras as she was minding her own business and picking out footwear at a Walmart in North Carolina, you can bet your bottom dollar you're going to be spooked out and get police involved. And then you discover this isn't the man's first time getting in trouble with the law for loving the taste -- texture, smell, what is it exactly?! -- of feet. And that's when things begin to get really strange.
Michael Brown reportedly approached Erika and attempted to play out the exact above scenario. When she became obviously freaked out after he put her foot in his mouth, he allegedly apologized profusely and promised to buy her groceries if she agreed to keep the incident confidential.
After telling police, it was discovered that Michael was convicted of breaking into a woman's house in 2001 so he could suck on her toes. He was also a registered sex offender.
Oddly, this man is far from being the only one we've heard about who has gotten in trouble with the law after pursuing one strange fetish or another. Have a look at 5 of the creepiest arrests we've heard about in recent times.
