(Newser) – Let's hope he's not a big reader. A 20-year-old man has been barred from "all the libraries on the face of the earth" for some rather inappropriate alleged behavior at one of them. Tyree S. Carter reportedly masturbated in a Wisconsin library one morning earlier this month; a criminal complaint says he was "standing in the open, not trying to conceal the act."

When a police officer appeared on the scene, however, Carter had his nose in a book and said he didn't know why the cop was there. Once the officer told him, Carter said he was sorry and had never done it in public before, per the complaint. His bond was set at $1,000 and included the condition that he stay out of all the planet's libraries, the Journal Times reports. He now faces a year in prison and fines of up to $11,000.
