PINELLAS PARK — A St. Petersburg man was arrested Tuesday after police said he “dry humped" multiple stuffed animals at the Park Place Target, including Olaf, the snowman from the wildly successful Disney film Frozen.

The other victim was a large stuffed unicorn.

Police said Cody Meader, 20, of St. Petersburg, entered the store around 2 p.m. Tuesday. He walked up to a display of merchandise from Frozen, picked a large Olaf stuffed animal, placed it on the floor and proceeded to rub himself against it until he ejaculated.

Then he put it back on the display.

Authorities said Meader then walked into a toy aisle and grabbed another stuffed animal, this time a large unicorn, and rubbed himself against it as well.

Meader was detained in the store where police said he admitted to doing “stupid stuff.” Police said his father, who was not at the scene, told them Meader “has a history of this type of behavior.”

According to an arrest report, the dolls were removed from the store and destroyed.

Meader was charged with one misdemeanor account of criminal mischief and taken to Pinellas County jail. He was released on $150 bail that same day. He has no prior arrest history in Pinellas County.

Police said it is unknown if mental health is a factor.
