I wasn’t masturbating … I was getting some sun … yes, on my wang


A five-time convicted flasher may have thought he found a way out of another  charge when he was arrested in a North Seattle park last month.

Confronted by Seattle police after a report that he was masturbating in Cowen  Park, Tracy J. McDonald purportedly blamed the weather.

At 5:45 p.m. on Aug. 8, a 23-year-old woman walking her dog spotted McDonald  topless with his pants around his ankles, Seattle Detective Donna Stangeland  said in court documents. McDonald was masturbating, the woman told police, and  staring at her.

Police arrived and found McDonald, who claimed he was sunbathing.

“He said he was getting ‘some sun,’” Stangeland told the court. “There was  absolutely no sun where he was standing.

McDonald was released from the scene but was subsequently arrested on Aug. 23  in Everett. He is accused of exposing himself on two occasions in  Snohomish County.

King County prosecutors have charged McDonald with one count of felony  indecent exposure; McDonald is charged with two identical counts in  Snohomish County.

The 44-year-old has previously been convicted of felony indecent exposure  twice, and misdemeanor indecent exposure three times. He remains jailed in  Snohomish County on $50,000 bail.
