Detroit Man With Mannequin Fetish Arrested Again

(AP) FERNDALE, Mich. A Detroit man with a history of smashing store windows to grab female mannequins has been accused of indulging his fetish again.

Ronald A. Dotson, 39, was arrested and jailed Oct. 9 after breaking a window at a cleaning-supply company to get at a mannequin in a black and white French maid's uniform, police said.

A judge Thursday ordered him to undergo a psychiatric examination to determine whether he is competent to stand trial on charges of attempted breaking and entering.

"Mr. Dotson went to prison and they haven't helped him," said his lawyer, Edward Cohn. "He got out of prison and he was right back out there. It's pretty bizarre."

Dotson had been out of prison for less than a week when he was caught. His erotic pursuit of mannequins over the past 13 years has led to at least six convictions for breaking and entering and a stint in prison, police said.

"He told his parole officer he was going to buy a mannequin so he didn't have to do these break-ins anymore," said Detective Brendan Moore said. "Apparently that didn't work out."

................ if only the window weren't there............ I think he's ok.

****

Now, on the other hand - a male mannequin:

Murtha is just a Democrat talking points boob.

He's an old criminal wooden mannequin for the Democrat Party. Murtha can't talk without Edgar Bergen standing by his side.

Your right, if it were Ferndale he'd be stealing the male mannequins.

I think it's more prevalent than you would think. I used to live in a town where a guy who ran a used car lot would pose them around the cars. He had a favorite which got mannequin-napped. He offered a reward for "her return". There was a story in the paper about how miserable he was without her. He got her back (college boys I think) but it was just weird. LOL.
