Crime: Transmitting Harmful Material to a Minor
Ratchet Meter: 8
Authorities say a theme park Captain America was arrested for texting inappropriate pictures to a teenage girl.
Last week, 29-year-old James Weldon Alton was taken into custody after sending the pictures to a 16-year-old that he he posed for a photo with a few weeks ago. Alton, who played Captain America at Universal Studios in Orlando, sparked what authorities describe as an "online relationship" after the girl posted the picture to Instagram. In other words, he became that dude lurking in the social media shadows, leaving comments that exhibit his creepy old guy thirst.
The teen told police that their conversations were friendly until Alton went from two to 10 at record speed, sending her dick pics, then discussing masturbation and "getting into her." That sounds every kind of wrong, especially considering that Alton did all of this after finding out the girl was just 16. Universal Studios terminated Alton, and he was charged with transmitting harmful material to a minor.
