NC man accused of sucking on toes is arrested

LINCOLNTON, N.C. (AP) -- Police in North Carolina have arrested a man accused of sucking on a woman's toes at a Wal-Mart after convincing her that he was a podiatry student.

Authorities say Michael Anthony Brown was arrested Thursday night at his home in Concord. He was turned over to Lincolnton police. A Lincoln County magistrate set his bond at $50,000 on a charge of assault on a female. It's wasn't immediately known if Brown has an attorney.

According to police, Brown is a registered sex offender.

Detective Dennis Harris said the woman agreed to try on several pairs of shoes at the store in Lincolnton. Harris says at some point, the man stuck her foot in his mouth. Police say when the woman became upset, the man offered to pay for her groceries.
