      Man accused of sex with table

      Police say a man was arrested after being caught on a DVD and has admitted to having sex repeatedly with his picnic table.

      Investigators say they received a tip that Art Price Jr., 40, of 146 Brinker St. in Bellevue was having sex with a picnic table while he is outside on the deck. The incidents occurred between January and March 2008.

      Police say on March 13, the tipster dropped off three DVDs which showed Price in the act. On four occasions, Price is seen naked and masturbating in the rear room near the open doorway; he then comes out to the deck. He tilts the metal round picnic table on its side and lays up against it and has sexual intercourse with the table. Afterwards he cleans the table and the deck.

      Police say the the incidents occurred close to Ridge Elementary School.

      On March 20 Huron County prosecutors met with investigating officers and were shown the DVDs. Later that day, Price was brought in for questioning.

      Police say that during questioning, Price admitted that he had sex with the picnic table. He confirmed to police the incidents caught on the DVDs and said he had also had sex with the table inside the home.

      Price faces four counts of public indecency. He is free on a $20,000 bond.
