(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.

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.
