UFC middleweight Andre Petroski remained undefeated inside the UFC octagon on Saturday night when he defeated Gerald Meerschaert by way of split decision at UFC 292.
While the 32-year-old Kutztown University graduate may have increased his record to 5-0 with the UFC, he now has another victory to add to his resume. Petroski and team helped stop an alleged public masturbator who was later arrested by the New Jersey State Police. MMAJunkie reporter Nolan King first reported the story along with video of Petroski’s team controlling the situation.
Petroski’s cornermen Eddy Torres and Billy Janzer confronted the alleged masturbator in the public restroom of a rest stop in Montvale, N.J.
“We walk out and my buddy Billy is like, ‘Yo, did you see that?’” Petroski said. “I was like, ‘Nah.’ He was like, ‘The dude next to me was jerking off in the urinal watching me piss. I just looked over, and he was staring at me.’
“At first, I was like, ‘Are you sure, bro? What are you talking about?’ We go back in and the dude is still there. This time, he runs into the stall, and he’s watching people go to the urinal.”
Petroski said he, Torres, Janzer, and the manager of the rest station waited approximately 20 minutes for the man to come out of the stall – and still he did not resurface. It was time to try another approach.
“We went in and got him, came out, and called the cops,” Petroski said.
Petroski continued to detail the events as they unfolded.
“My coach Eddy doesn’t play like that,” Petroski said. “He’s like, ‘Where’s your car at? Where’s your car at?’ He’s like, ‘I Ubered here.’ We’re like, ‘Hold up. You Ubered to a rest stop in the middle of the highway? You Ubered? With what intentions?’
“Who Ubers to a rest stop in the middle of Jersey in the middle of the highway? Then he finally admitted, ‘Oh, I have problems, blah, blah, blah.’ He admitted he comes once a week. The managers were able to go back and look at the cameras and see how often he comes.”
After an investigation, the man was charged with lewdness and released from custody pending a court appearance.
