Let’s not make this a rant against all bowlers who fondle themselves at the lanes . . . but you know who you are. Why don’t you just try and keep your laptops with pictures of naked women on them at home, okay?
A 56-year-old transient man was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of looking at digital pornography and fondling himself inside the Palo Alto Bowl, police said. Grant Willner was arrested at 6:20 p.m. Sunday in the bowling alley on the 4000 block of El Camino Real after a female bartender saw him staring at a naked image of a woman on a laptop, said Sgt. Wayne Benitez of the Palo Alto Police Department. The bartender said she saw the man fondling himself at the long counter in the center of the bowling alley, Benitez said. Willner told police he wasn’t masturbating and that the photo was of his girlfriend, who recently e-mailed it to him, Benitez said. After arresting Willner on suspicion of committing a lewd act in public, police confiscated the laptop and will consider seeking a search warrant from the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office to check its files, Benitez said.
