Last week, Penn State point guard Stanley Pringle was charged with "open lewdness and disorderly conduct" in the library stacks for publicly masturbating. He has an, um, interesting defense to charges.
Responding to recent charges leveled against him, Nittany Lion basketball player Stanley Pringle told police he was touching his penis but was not masturbating in the Pattee Library stacks last Thursday.
Pringle told police he has "a bad habit of putting his hand down his pants," and demonstrated for the officer by placing his hand down the front of his sweatpants, according to the complaint.
"Why would I need to masturbate?" he told police. "This is how I chill, ma'am."
Wow. Maybe he can offer a catchy rhyme at his hearing as well.

If the Pringle didn't pop, charges should drop?
