Red, White and Eww: Captain America Sent Pics Of Private America To 16 Year Old Girl

A man who played Captain America for Universal Studios in Orlando is facing criminal charges of transmitting harmful material to a minor after he sent a 16-year-old girl sexts and pictures of his penis.

James Weldon Alton, 29, was arrested after the girl’s father found the sexually explicit messages and pictures on his daughter’s phone. The girl said that she had taken a picture with Alton while he was in costume at the theme park. He found the picture online, commented, and then the two began talking as friends.

Alton told police that when she told him she was under 18, “he thought it was a joke or that it was all just merely online flirtatious relationship.”

A spokesman for Universal Orlando, Tom Schroder, told the Orlando Sentinel that Alton has since been fired.

Loki pointed out in an interview that he would never do that.
