Earlier this week, a couple from North Liberty, Iowa made the news when they we're busted for having sex on a public trail...now this guy is trying "beat" them out...

To this guy's credit, at least he respected the library policy of being quiet.

A 44-year-old man named Leroy McFarland was at the public library in Sioux City, Iowa on Friday afternoon, and he was pleasuring himself.

But he must've been doing it quietly, because he only got caught when a woman who was wandering around the library turned a corner and spotted him. And he said . . . quote, "Oh hi."

The cops came, and as they were taking Leroy out to their car, a sex toy fell off of him. The police report doesn't say where it fell from, but we're letting our imaginations handle that.

He's been charged with indecent exposure.
