Substitute teacher, 72, arrested for furiously masturbating in high school hallway

A 72-year old substitute teacher at a public high school in the never-ending suburbs of Connecticut proved that he’s still got it when he was busted for allegedly masturbating right there in a hallway.

The septuagenarian teacher is Michael Luecke, reports The Courant. The incident happened on Wednesday. The scene of the crime was Westhill High School in Stamford.

Police say a school paraprofessional spotted Luecke doing the deed just after 7:30 a.m. The woman said she walked by Luecke as he was sitting in the hallway. She thought maybe he was hurt.

When she approached him, she said, she realized that the 72-year old substitute teacher had his hand stuck down his pants and was “manipulating his penis.”

The school paraprofessional then notified school officials, who notified police.

At that point, school officials removed Luecke from the class he was calmly teaching.

According to The Courant, surveillance video of the scene shows Luecke in a stairwell “suspiciously manipulating the front of his pants while looking at students in the courtyard.”

The sub then vanishes behind some lockers for a moment. Then, he reappears, lying on his back on the floor, focused on the task at hand. At some point, the shocked paraprofessional discovered him — but not before a half dozen students stroll by.

It’s not clear if the students noticed Luecke, realized what he was doing or cared. Nevertheless, school officials as well as local police are working to identify the teenagers to see if they need counseling.

Meanwhile, notes News 12 Connecticut, police have announced that they will not be releasing the video.

Luecke, who has no criminal record, now faces three charges: public indecency, breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor.
