Pants-less puppeteer charged with indecent exposure

Jim Henson he’s not.

A 44-year-old man was arrested earlier this month after witnesses at a Federal Way apartment complex spotted him using his genitals as a puppet.

Prosecutors have now charged Timothy Wayne Martin, of Auburn, with felony indecent exposure.

At issue, according to court documents, was a May 13 incident during which Martin was spotted by residents of the Arcadia Apartment Complex standing partially nude over an air conditioner intake.

Clad only in an unbuttoned flannel shirt, Martin appeared to have attached a string to his genitals and “was apparently manipulating it with the string like a puppet,” according to police.

When Martin was arrested at the scene minutes after the 10:30 a.m. incident, the string was still attached, police contend. Prosecutors say he was also in possession of a small quantity of methamphetamine, as well as a pornographic magazine.

Due to two similar convictions, Martin was charged under the state’s felony indecent exposure statute. He remains confined at the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent on $25,000 bail.
