Man arrested in S.D. for paddling mall clerk on behind

RAPID CITY, S.D. -- Rapid City police arrested a man from the United Kingdom for swatting a mall clerk on the buttocks with a paddle.

KOTA reports that police arrested 54-year-old David Spencer on Monday after they were alerted by mall security.

Spencer reportedly offered to sell the clerk a paddle on Saturday. When she turned him down, he told her she could spank him six times for one dollar. The woman allowed the man to spank her once so he would leave the business, but then reportedly spanked her a second time without her permission.

When the woman saw the man on Monday, she alerted the mall security who notified police.

Spencer told police he was trying to sell the paddles to keep traveling in the United States.
