A U.S. airman on leave in Minnesota found out the hard way that it’s not a good idea to give any cop a “wet willy.”

Riley Louis Swearingen, 24, of Goldsboro, North Carolina, licked his fingers early Saturday morning and stuck them into a cop’s ears in Mankato, Minnesota, a local paper reported Monday. He was promptly arrested after allegedly telling friends, “I just gave the cop a wet willy.”

During a court hearing on Monday, the air traffic controller at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge of disruptive intoxication, the paper reported. His BAC at the time of the incident was .18.

“I thought it would be incredibly funny to give a police officer a wet willy, to which I was sorely mistaken,” Mr. Swearingen explained, the paper reported.

The airman was sentenced by District Court Judge Kurt Johnson to the three days he spent in jail. He also paid $77 in court costs.
