Joey Leaphart: Walmart Toe Sucker Says, 'It Tasted So Good!'
Joey Leaphart Identified as 'Walmart Toe Sucker'
An 18-year-old woman was approached by a man in his 40s at a Grovetown, Georgia Walmart. After reading the headline, you know where this is going, so you may decide if you want to keep reading.
The man told her that he worked for America's Funniest Home Videos in order to trick her into letting him suck her toes. The man was identified as Joey Leaphart, a registered sex offender who is no stranger to foot-fetish-related incidents.
We'll let the Walmart Toe-Sucker police report do the talking:
"I responded to 5010 Steiner Way (Walmart) in response to a sexual assault. I spoke with Ms. [REDACTED] who stated in summary: While shopping at Walmart she was approached by a man in his late thirties or early forties. The man, later identified as Mr. Joey Leaphart, asked her if her toe nails were painted? She replied "yes" and asked him why. He told her, "I know this sounds crazy, but have you ever heard of America's Funniest Home Videos?" She told him yes and he implied that this encounter was for a TV show. He told her that if she agreed, any items that she purchased would be free at the registers, as long as the amount did not exceed $100. He then asked if he could take a picture of her foot, she reluctantly agrees, with him assuring her that she would receive her items for free, because this was "just a prank". After he takes a picture of her foot he tells her "I know this is crazy, but can I kiss your foot?" She agreed to it under the impression that it was a TV prank. Mr. Leaphart guides her around behind a clothing rack and tells her"let's move over her [sic] so people don't think I'm crazy." He then drops to the floor, grabs her ankle, and tells her "don't worry I don't bite." Mr. Leaphart then puts her big toe in his mouth and starts sucking on it. Ms. [REDACTED] immediately screams at him to stop, and to leave. Mr. Leaphart stands up and tells her "Oh it tasted so good though!" and runs from the store."
In case you are wondering, such a crime is considered misdemeanor simple battery.
