A man who sucked an unwilling woman's toes inside a Wal-Mart has been sentenced to 60 days in jail.
Michael Anthony Brown apologised for his actions during his court appearance on Thursday (local time). He was convicted of assault.
Police said the 31-year-old Brown told the victim he was a podiatry student and asked her to try on shoes for him in the shoe department of the Wal-Mart in Lincolnton last month.
Investigators said Brown eventually stuck the woman's foot in his mouth and sucked on her toes, then offered to pay for her groceries after she appeared outraged.
Brown was apprehended at his home and turned over to police.
