How about the line about "having a wide stance." Sounds like someone searching for reasonable doubt. Afterall, everyone knows you grab the side walls before you take a wide stance.
“Wide Stance” — it may mean that he rides horses a lot, which can make you bow-legged, and cause you to spread your legs wide when sitting.
If you knew you had this problem, and were embarrased by it, you might WAIT in the bathroom for the adjacent stalls to be clear.
And you might peek to make sure someone was really IN the stall, and then to see what they were doing for 13 minutes without grunting or flushing.
Later, when the guy taps his feet back at you, you might start wondering what is happening.
I have trouble explaining the hand under the stall, especially if the cop is telling the truth that no paper fell to the floor.
If I drop paper on the floor, I pick it up and put it in the toilet, so as not to litter.
I’m not saying he’s not guilty as he pled, just that you could explain a lot of what he did as innocent.
But aren't you bothered by the idea that grabbing the side wall is illegal?
