Man arrested for masturbating in 'Fifty Shades Darker' theater

Filed under "Wish we didn't know."

A man was reportedly arrested in France during a showing of "Fifty Shades Darker" for -- yup -- masturbating in his seat. According to The Sun, he was in a dark corner of the theater, but that wasn't enough privacy to ward off fellow moviegoers' eyes. He was caught by off-duty military officers who had the unfortunate luck of sitting in the same row.

Did we mention he was at the movie with his wife?

The man "said he had been masturbating in cinemas since he was 15 and did not think there was much wrong with it," said a source with close knowledge of the case.

According to French media, police removed the man from the theater before being they arrested him for public indecency. He was let out on bail and is now under investigation for sexual exhibitionism, which could end in brief jail time and a fine.

The real question is -- did his wife stay to finish the flick? Hey, movie tickets aren't cheap.
